The Subversion merge command does not support that. The only way this
could be done is to execute multiple merge commands. I think that would
be a bad idea for TSVN to "just do". For one thing, you can get false
conflicts due to the local modification from the previous merge. When I
have to do this, I usually do one range at a time, followed by a commit,
but it also depends on what I am merging.
