I need to do this quite often when working with multiple branches (a
state which I continually find myself in). In fact, just yesterday I
left a change sitting in the 1.2.x branch's STATUS file rather than
merging it because it consisted of so many revisions:

  * r14008, r14458, r14587, r14632, r15329, r15340
    Fixes to svnmerge.
    Justification:
      It would be good to have contrib code be the latest and fixed
      version. We don't guarantee that this code works, but it would
      be good to have known fixes released. This fixes four issues.
      Blair has used the code in trunk in a production environment and
      it works great.

Being able to practically cut and pate that first line to my
command-line client would've been a significant speed-up, and an overall
usability plus.
