I was updating Jack Repenning on all of this to get his take. He said
that #2897 is the most common use case. It is what everyone that uses
ClearCase UCM does (in fact it is officially called the "Standard Use
Model") and if Subversion does not have that feature then it does not
have merge tracking.

I cannot really disagree. I raised this back in June and I've raised
it several times since then. It is hard to argue that we have
advanced the bar if a user cannot merge a branch back to trunk.
