The other day I noticed that the 'svn mergeinfo' command passes
'discover_changed_paths = TRUE' to svn_client_mergeinfo_log(), although
it doesn't need this information. Expecting to improve performance, I
changed the parameter to FALSE and found that the result was actually
slower. Looking further now, I see that the result is different.
Example: svn mergeinfo --show-revs=eligible
