[proposal] API to obtain hereditary mergeinfo

Hi,

Given,
svn merge source -r r1:r2

    Currently, the mergeinfo merges from the source happen at only one
level (i.e., from only the source directory/file). However, because we use
the concept of eliding (store mergeinfo at the first most common point),
there might be mergeinfo in the parent or grandparent which affects the
current source file/directory.

    So, we need an API (or should it be a static function)
svn_merge_hereditary_merge_info(), that takes recursively merges the
mergeinfo from all its anscestors.

    I thought I could get your opinion before I go ahead and implement the
same.

Regards,
Madan.
