Which is exactly what SVK already does, so rather than trying to reinvent the
wheel, why not look at what CLKao has already accomplished and see about moving
that into the Subversion core. I don't share your (Eric's) opinion that svk is
a kludge, but that may be because I am actually using it on an almost daily
basis to great effect. Is this a subtle bias because it is written in Perl
using the Perl bindings to Subversion or a more direct criticism of the use of
custom attributes to store merge points?

Oh, and the Win32 port is apparently complete and passing all existing tests:


I'll be testing that RSN, since I want to move off of CVSNT for work...
