SVN (Subversion) diff tools

I've been using GUI based CVS tools for some time now and found that they have become quite mature, especially in the side-by-side diff department, giving a detailed comparison of versions, often down to the character level.
However, for reasons I don't have time to go into, one of the projects I am working on has decided to go to "subversion" SCM tool, and I am looking for a decent GUI wrapper for the svn commands. I have found a couple nice ones, most notibly "esvn" (Qt based) and JSVN (Java). Though the configuration seems clumsy, they give you basic functionality.
The one thing I HAVE NOT FOUND is a decent integrated side-by-side diff tool. All of the tools make use of the "unified diff" notation, with pluses and minuses for lines added or removed. That's fine for simple changes, but if there are a lot of things that are different, it becomes absolutely impossible to read. If you are trying to merge to different conflicting versions, then you might as well give up.
Has anyone found a decent GUI subversion tool that provides a decent diff and/or merge tool?
