How could merge tracking be merge tracking if it does not do this? It
has to scan the working copy to find out if you have any subtree
mergeinfo.

I do not think it makes sense to try and change this. If we really
implement a new WC, this checking will become trivial as it will no
longer be crawling the WC to find this information. That seems like a
better solution given that the code is working as intended.
