Well. I find r10 the natural choice.
Using the commandline, I would do a "svn merge -r 10:15 .." also.
A "svn merge -r 12:15 .." would be wrong here!
And a "svn merge -r 11:15 .." though correct, would seem weird to me.

That is surely true. The Merge dialog/action is complicated.
I just would like to select the same revs in the "Show Log:" I would use on
the commandline.
The current behaviour is just "too much magic" for my taste ;-)
