Hi Jonathan,

I agree that there is still room for a "takeover" feature. I don't think
my variation of your original patch in any way precludes that.

To avoid confusion I'm working to remove all "takeover" language in the
patch. Philip Martin suggested 'E' for "Exists" which I quite like.

Merged is represented with a 'G' during an update:

  svn update --help
    <snip>
    For each updated item a line will start with a character reporting the
    action taken. These characters have the following meaning:

      A Added
      D Deleted
      U Updated
      C Conflict
      G Merged

    A character in the first column signifies an update to the actual
file,
    while updates to the file's properties are shown in the second column.
