Yup, I found that too.

I also avoided the work duplication in the reimplementation of svn_client_merge_reintegrate(): I made the internal find_reintegrate_merge() function return the sessions and youngest common ancestor revision, so that merge_reintegrate_locked() can call merge_cousins_...() directly instead of calling the higher-level merge_locked().

Committed in this form in r1213349.

Thanks for looking.
