[RFC] Issue #3322 - In tree conflict info, report left/right URL@REV of the incoming change

Tree conflicts usability: we should store the "left"/"old" and the
"right"/"theirs" URL_at_REV of the incoming change, and show it in the tree
conflict details in "svn info".


I recently filed this issue at a low priority, but I'm wondering if in
fact this should be almost as high priority as the other stuff we're
currently considering.

In a strict work environment, the user can discover or reconstruct these
values, but that can involve having to remember what the last merge was,
and/or finding the revision range using "svn mergeinfo" and/or "svn
diff" on a target that was merged. In other words, it's tricky, and the
last thing we want is to make users have to do tricky detective work
when a conflict is already an event that is often perceived as a

I hate to add a non-bug-fix item to the mix but I'm now think it's
effectively a usability bug fix.

Considered opinions please.
