New merge APIs review, and JavaHL

Morning!

This is pretty much the last open issue I have with the JavaHL upgrade
to our new APIs.

There are two revised merge APIs:

    svn_client_merge5
    svn_client_merge_peg5

and also a whole new group of svn_client_automatic_merge_ APIs, and the
(not revised) svn_client_merge_reintegrate. I'm in a dilemma as to which
of these APIs to use in JavaHL; and I'm also wondering if
svn_client_merge(_peg)5 should even exist, given the new automatic
variants are supposed do supersede them, and whether
svn_client_merge_reintegrate should be deprecated.

Regarding the latter, I'm given to understand that we will still have to
use svn_client_merge_reintegrate in some -- extreme? -- cases, but IMO,
it would be more correct to deprecate now even if the automatic merge
doesn't cover all edge cases yet.
