Actually, the only feature I believe Subversion really needs, and was
discussed in the original technical notes but never implemented, is
the ability to track what revisions were already merged.

As far as I can tell, almost everything else is icing on the cake, but
merge tracking is something that is needed if you're going to include
Subversion in more complex projects.

I know tha SVK does it, and I know a few people who use SVK only for
its merge tracking ability. Where does that feature stand in
Subversion itself.
