I've pecked away at generating similar reports via svn. Haven't had any
timeouts or other problems. The design I had in mind was to generate a web
page listing the names of all libraries with unmerged changes, with each
name linked to a diff for that particular library. The web page would be
generated and posted daily, similar to the inspection report.
Your reports are very helpful; they are a clear demonstration of how serious
the unmerged changes problem is.
