Enhancement request for the merging API: "Commit message suggestion"

Hi devs,

I have a enhancement request for the merging API.

Problem 1:
Whenever a revision is merged TortoiseSVN 1.5.0-dev suggests a commit
message based on the revisions which have been merged and their author and
commit message ("Commit message suggestions"). Unfortunately it cannot tell
if a revision specified by the user was really merged. For example a
revision could have been blocked by an existing svn:mergeinfo entry.
Therefore the created log message sometimes contains too many entries.

Problem 2:
A further problem is that every SVN client might generate this commit
message in a slightly different way.

The solution to both problems:
Could the callback of svn_client_merge_peg4 (notify_func of
svn_client_ctx_t) please provide a suggested commit message at the end of
the merge. All SVN clients will then be able to present this to the user so
that he can use it.
This log message should be formated similar to the one svnmerge.py creates,
maybe even exactly the same format.
