Too bad. Well. I guess we'll have to wait until SVN gets support for "copied to" in addition to the "copied from" to make this kind of queries efficient. (Answer the question of "in what revisions have the trunk been branched".)

Thought so*2. The strange thing is that (at least it feels like) it is about as slow as a complete merge... Wellwell, not really an important issue.
