Well, those are *huge* words to say :)

As it stands, given the "bugs" Karl mentioned, they have the same
behaviour from the user point of view, but at least with SVN it's not
a manual tricky hack inside the repository, and neither a dark
combination of command line options.

Are those documented somewhere?

Uhm, I missed this! Am I wrong understanding this as "it's not the
copy+delete implementation that prevents this to happen, but it's a
bug in the merge command"?
