For those who don't have a numerically-keyed hash of issues in their
brain:

* Fix for #3432:
  "Merge can record mergeinfo from natural history gaps"

* Fix for #3489:
  "Filenames with @ cannot be committed to the repository unless an @ is
added at the end."

* future-proof patch
  "Make 1.6.7 (and subsequent Subversion releases) recognize Subversion
1.7+ working copies."

* Fix for #3519:
  "ra_serf using Label header unsupported by mod_dav_svn"

+1 to the general notion of getting a 1.6.7 release out as soon as we
have some useful fixes in it.
