Not directly related to your point, but I really don't like the r in front of
the revision number. I do a lot of copy and pasting revision numbers between
windows and having to select the revision number without the r instead of just
double-clicking on it is a pain. Say you run a svn log and want the revision
number for a merge or checkout, you just can't double click the rev number and
paste it elsewhere.

Maybe we change svnmerge.py to display the r's and also handle r's in revision
numbers handed to svn? It would look ugly:

svn merge -r r123:r456 http://....

but it would make life easier.
