And if _you_ are confused, think about the random user who has no idea
what is going on internally. This is inconsistent with every other
merge-like operation, so I think this may call for a redesign (at least
of the user interface). Is it sufficient to say display (r-1):r (where
svn_merge_range_t contains just r)?
