Couldn't we just skip some of this stuff for foreign repository
merges? We already do some of that with merge tracking. I think it
is reasonable for some features to be removed when doing this.

I have a "meta-question". At some point are you going to make the
actual svn diff --summarize command support a WC to REPOS compare? As
I said a few weeks ago, this is something that GUI clients would
really benefit from having work. If that is the plan, does it make
sense to get that code into trunk and working first?
