Thanks! CC me when you submit your patch.

Yes, definitely! Can you think of a clean way to implement that?

merge_metadata maintains its own cache of property values, so there's
no need to maintain a separate cache here (and add complexity). Still,
I intended to remove the 'old_revs = new_revs' line because it is not
needed.

I committed a change which simplified and optimized this bit of code
to avoid the cache lookups in r20074, by simply iterating through the
changed revs and changed values.

Cheers,

David
