In practice I think the only problem would be that the base props for
the roots of branches would not match the repo (one would have
svn:mergeinfo, and the other would have svnmerge-integrated).
Additionally, there'd be extra random svn:mergeinfo scattered in our
repositories. Perhaps somebody could write a script to do the same
transformation to working copies.
