I'm lagging behind in the "svnmerge integrated" thread (sorry Daniel!), but
I still have to understand if this is duplicate functionality with "svnmerge
integrated", and if not why.
I'd like the default version being a disconnected operation (thus, no list
of "available revisions"). We could then have a -U/--show-updates option
(that mimics "svn status -U") which would require server connection and show
also the available revisions. If we do this, we could make "svnmerge avail"
become an alias for "svnmerge status -U".

I'd rather call it "status". I would like a "svnmerge log" which does a
different thing, that is the equivalent of calling "svn log" for all the
merges done in the branch.

I prefer small commits, if they make sense on their own. Adding a function
without a caller is pointless, but factoring things out can be done as
separate commits (explaining that it's done to make way to the new feature).
