I don't have a strong opinion about this either way. We are tauting the
--record-only capabilities as a feature, so if someone does a merge with a
pre-1.5 client, we *should* be able to touch up the mergeinfo later, right?
  If we wanted to toy with this some, we could block commits to places other
than trunk/ from pre-1.5 clients or something.
