Is c5 (r4:5) included in the merge? If so, r5:16 is incorrect or at least
svnmerge.py includes the lower bound in its -r5-16 notation; perhaps it should
use -c5-16 instead.

Colloquially everyone seem to use rN both for revision N and change N-1:N.
The phrase "please have a look at r4711" must be interpreted in context
to understand what is meant, so consistenly using cN might be an improvement.
