OK, I misunderstood the difference between the 'reintegrate' branch
and the 2897 branch.

It seems like the reintegrate branch at least makes it easy an
automatic for users to manage and re-merge feature branches (assuming
they treat their branch reasonably.) That's all I care about for svn
1.5. It sounds like Kamesh's branch is a much fancier (and more
complex) generalization of this problem, so I'm fine with putting that
off till svn 1.6.
