Another idea (due to "eg" on users@):

Finish the ignore-mergeinfo branch
----------------------------------
This branch exists to add --ignore-mergeinfo to 'diff', 'st' and 'log.
The goal of this flag is to allow the user to filter changes to mergeinfo
from various reporting operations, thus allowing them to more easily detect
"real" changes of interest. Several modes need to be supported:

 * 'log'
   - Retrieve logs from the server

 * 'diff'
   - Local diff
   - URL <-> WC diff
   - URL <-> URL diff
   - Diff summarize (in the above modes)

 * 'status'
   - Local status

Some prelimenary work has been done (Hyrum can you help quantify how much?)
The task is to finish the work begun on this branch so we can reintegrate
the branch into Subversion trunk in time for the 1.8 release.
