When synchronizing SVN head with the code in the sandbox I used
TortoiseSVN's merge functionality, and it works very well: you even get to
do a "dry run" if you want to see what will happen first. However, that
doesn't help if you are using the command line client, but basically it's
just a wrapper around svn merge .... you have to keep a note of what
revisions were merged when (I put that in the docs so I don't forget), but
other than that it seems very straightforward.

Not sure this helps,
