RE: [random line of thought] Hiding svn:mergeinfo

It would completely break mergetracking for about a dozen reasons :(

I'll answer more detailed later, but this would just remove the
property everywhere.

And if you could hide it in a better way while still storing it in the
wc, you would always forget to commit your mergeinfo only changes.

Subject: [random line of thought] Hiding svn:mergeinfo
Mike remarked that svn:mergeinfo should never have been user-visible...

So: what if we made svn_property_kind(NULL, SVN_PROP_MERGEINFO) return
a value other than svn_prop_regular_kind, at least when both server and
client were ≥1.7? Would that have any useful side-effects?

[I suspect it might, but want to hear others' thoughts before laying
out my own.]
