Exactly. I REALLY wanted to put it into svn_opt_args_to_target_array2() but
could not come up with a good way to do it easily for exactly the reasons you
outlined.

Darn, and I really wanted it in 1.5. :) That's why I've been working so hard on
this...staying up late learning the cmdline test package. :) Honestly one of
my main motivations here was that I'm really excited about built in
merge-tracking, but going back to full urls every time, only this time NOT
having a convenient copy-n-paste from 'svnmerge avail' (svn mergeinfo now)
really felt like a regression in usability. My users were very grateful for
the svnmerge upgrade that allowed a "non-ambiguous" string for merge sources.

I guess I could wait until 1.6 and I suppose that would provide time for a
bunch of other people to pound on the merge-tracking stuff on production
projects before I do!
