I guess this is my vote, #2. There will be other people with
mergeinfo props in their repository and this will help us learn if
there are things to fix when this happens. Setting aside the issue of
bogus props, either #1 or 2 are closest to what our users need to do,
so again it will help identify anything about the process that does
not work right or needs to be better.

I could even see us doing #1 for a few weeks and then doing #2
(without needing to re-run the svnmerge-migrate script the second

Finally, we do not have a ton of branches with work going on that
would pick up some great benefit from being fancier. We are probably
better of staying close to what we are telling our users to do with
their repositories.
