script to force SVN to elide mergeinfo on child paths

Hi all,

I've cooked up a perl script that will run a giant --record-only merge
on the root of a branch in an attempt to get SVN to elide all the
mergeinfo on the child paths. This is very much a work in progress and
is semi-specific to my case (some hardcoded paths), but should be
possible to generalize. I'm not 100% sure it works, since the mergeinfo
in my repository is very messed up, but some of it gets elided, which
gives me hope. Pburba has been a huge help to me in creating this
script, and he suggested I send it to this list. You can do whatever
you want with it, including releasing it as open source, if you wish.
I'm probably going to continue development on it until my mergeinfo
problems are solved, so I'll send out another version if I make any
changes of note.
