I was also wondering how your proposal differs from how SVK is currently storing
merge information. I realize that your proposal doesn't include SVK's multiple
merge methodologies (star-merge, cherry-picking, and, just recently added to
trunk, interactive commit). But there are already merge tags in Subversion's
own repository that originate from SVK commits. How are those tags going to
interoperate with your proposed tags? What feature of your proposal is superior
to the existing scheme that SVK has been sucessfully employing for several years
now?
