Greg Stein can answer this better. Some operations will be possible,
others won't (for now at least). He knows which ones will work and
which ones won't, since he implemented mod_dav_svn, the server side of
our WebDAV implementation.

Not yet, although there's been discussion about implementing this.
Definitely post-1.0.

Yes, you can run merge on individual files.
