I shall look into this.

Initially I mentioned it as option and later when I posted it I switched
to subcommand. Shall revert it in my next patch :)

Now the options name is changed to --skip-missing-merge-sources as per
Kamesh's comments. I think this explains the option well than the
previous name. It is basically to manipulate the mergeinfo sources and
the rev numbers associated with it.

I ve updated this in my latest patch.

I need this continue statement, since I dont want the rest of the code
in the for loop to get executed and directly go to the next rangelist.
If the continue is not there, for the current rangelist the revmap at
sometime returns "start=end" which results in a mergeinfo something like
the following:

Properties on '/tmp/wc3/trunk':
   svn:mergeinfo : /branch1:3-2

Corrected in the updated patch.

Dan, thank you for your review comments :)
