We've had a number of requests for changes to the 'log -g' API, and while they
aren't going to happen before 1.6, I think they may be useful to keep in mind
for this work.

The biggest change, which is on my "I'll do it eventually" list, is to have the
receiver API return the fact that a merge occurred, but omit the actual merged
revisions. This would allow clients to decide if they want the merged revisions
and make repeated calls to the log API to get those merged revisions. I don't
how or if this impacts your work for issue 2897, but I thought I'd mention it.
