What is feasible to get from a log?

I found that on a branched version's log it's possible to guess that the
next snippet reflects branching (namely from servers/css to servers/css3
:

<logentry revision="42">
                <author>anonymous</author>
                <date>2002-12-25T23:25:08.835687Z</date>
                <paths>
                        <path copyfrom-path="/servers/css"
copyfrom-rev="41" action="A">/servers/css3</path>
                </paths>
                <msg>branch?</msg>
        </logentry>

But I see no way to get info from a log after merging. Since merge is a
client-oriented command the server knows nothing where the modified file
came from, correct?

So the question is about tracing the whole picture. If a general trunk
became branched and at some point I wanna merge the branch back to the
trunk then I wouldn't be able to trace merging from the log (though
branching seems to me I would). I missed something?

A short example:

A is a trunk rev.#1
A1 is its branch (result of COPY) rev.#2
A1 is changed rev#3
A1 is merged to A and commited rev#4

Now from the log I see where A1 came from but I don't where it gets to.
