[merge-tracking] Merge all changesets that are completely automatic

I'm sending this email to see ask about a requirement that I didn't
see at http://subversion.tigris.org/merge-tracking/requirements.html.

Will there be support to add a flag to the merge command that causes
it to merge all changesets that can be merged completely
automatically? Where I work there are a lot of branches being
maintained at the same time, and the developers want to be able to
schedule a cron job that will automatically merge any changesets that
don't require user intervention during the merge and then checkin the
results of the merge. Then they can have a separate cron job that
runs the equivalent of "svnmerge.py avail" and emails the results to
the team to resolve.

If this feature is going to be added, another feature I would like is
being able to run this sort of merge against URLs instead of a working
copy, so the merge is committed directly to the repository, since the
team doesn't want to test the results of the merge anyway.

Thanks,
Justin
