That's fine, it's what I would expect from a well managed project. I
have a question, however: do you always follow Subversion releases? If
that's the case, maybe the policy should be tweaked a bit to allow
features like this that don't depend on new Subversion stuff to trickle
into the stable version.

I would argue that when we're dealing with tempfiles, TMerge was called
by another program (the TortoiseSVN context menu or any other plugin or
IDE that chooses to use TMerge -- for example we're using the PushOk
plugin here) and that should have taken care of setting th descriptive
name too. If the descriptive name is *not* set, we're most likely
dealing with real files: I use TMerge all the time to diff files because
I like its interface.

Anyway, I certainly prefer to see the name of a tempfile rather than
nothing... It's not like your standard command-line diff will hide file
names if no labels are supplied.
