Two new points of interest, from someone who knows a lot more about
these things than I do

1. You may not want to hold your breath for merge tracking to appear
   in SVN; it might not be included in 1.5

2. It's quite possible that isn't the best approach for
   merging. Local use of Mercurial or Git (or svk?) might work
