FWIW, I personally have nothing against y'all using svk instead of
svnmerge.py. While svnmerge.py is light-weight and has consensus as
our "standard" for the time being, it certainly isn't the only tool
capable of handling the job. You and Nik are likely to be the only
ones doing merges into the branch; it doesn't make sense to me to get
in the way of your preferred tool set.
