Two clarifications:

The options I'm listing are all the options that I think could serve the user well, with different options being best in different circumstances.

As explained on <http://wiki.apache.org/subversion/KeepingReintegratedBranchAlive>, I mean that option (1) should record the revision as merged and (2) not record it.  Neither of those is what my previous patch did; it skipped but recorded, which is great for the simple case but not for the general case.
