Hi, sorry I've missed discussion in original thread, but I'd like to
share my thoughts about this issue. My opinion that Subversion should
handle svn:mergeinfo as special property by default and never show
them in svn status and svn commit, except --show-mergeinfo option

My idea that svn:mergeinfo is really special property, we use
properties for storing mergeinfo just to do not invent another storage
mechanism in libsvn_wc. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
