I think I agree. The whole mergeinfo user interface is kind of...
unfortunate ... anyway. For example, how do you find which rev
trashed the mergeinfo? (annotate/blame for properties?)

Anyway, I posted too soon after waking up with insufficient coffee. I
see mergeinfo spam as the problem, not generic property changes as a
problem. Although at one point I'd have loved a way to ignore
cvs2svn:cvs-rev and problems that caused.
