Suggestions for Merge Dialog

Hi TSVN Team,

I've been using the nightly builds for a while now and thought you might
appreciate some suggestions for the merge dialog.

TTFN,
Damian.

When 'Merge a range of revisions' is selected:
1. It would be helpful if the 'URL to merge from' field would default to
the location that this branch was copied from.
2. It would be helpful if the 'Revision range to merge' field would
default to the next revision after the latest revision that was
previously merged into this branch, up to HEAD.
3. When the 'Show log' button in the 'Revision range to merge' group box
is clicked, it would be helpful if there was a visual queue to say which
revisions have already been merged into this branch for items under the
'URL to merge from' directory. (#1) (#2)

#1: Didn't the log used to do this in earlier nightly builds? I have a
vague memory of seeing a whole bunch of grey log entries at some point
and I'm sure it was when I was browsing the log to find my last-merged
revision.
#2: Actually, it would be useful when browsing the log on a branch if
there was an obvious visual queue at the point where the branch was
created. Perhaps by greying out everything below the revision where the
'For complete history...' message appears or by leaving that message row
in the log but changing the message to 'Branch created from /trunk at
revision N' or something.
