Please refer to the earlier messages in the thread, starting here:
<http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2008-09/0008.shtml>, where questions
were raised about how users would forget to check in changes to their
mergeinfo if they aren't told that such changes exist. We need answers
to those concerns before you can say Subversion should never show them.
