If we changed our mergeinfo handling to not merge changes to the
mergeinfo property and instead just record direct mergeinfo, then we
could get the information you need by doing a property diff for that
revision. Right? Code we already have somewhere.

What impact would it have on our code if we did not carry around the
indirect mergeinfo? Do we currently rely on this information as a
form of cache ... or rather to save us from crawling the fs?
