I'd like to ask for feedback at this stage on the Wiki page <http://wiki.apache.org/subversion/SymmetricMerge> (renamed from SvnMergeTheory). The essential point is that it looks like we can relatively easily enhance Subversion so that a plain 'merge' command will act as either 'sync' or 'reintegrate' automatically, depending on the history of the branch, and furthermore will work better than either of them in the scenario of continuing work on a branch after a reintegrate.

Thanks Julian, this is a very good start. I'm looking forward to the day
when I get a deprecation warning upon using the --reintegrate option :)
