Feature: Revision graph allow merging

Hello,

For some people that come from ClearCase world it's natural to use the
revision graph (called "version tree") to do the merging. It would be
nice to have this option in Tortoise too.

Here's a simple scenario:

1. Show fully expanded revision graph
2. Right-click on a revision at some branch
3. Select "Merge to..."
4. Cursor changes to something like drag cursor indicating that we are
looking for a head revision on another branch
5. User selects a HEAD revision that's on another branch
6. Merge should start either automatically without the intermediate
"Merge" dialog or if it's a must then it should be filled with the
data selected in revision graph

I know that there's a lot more that just one file to be merged but if
we do the same on folders than it will start to make sense.

Another way to improve merging would be to follow the simplicity of
Subversion's 1.5 command-line client and allow the user to select a
branch instead or going through the Merge dialog as it is in current
form.

Best regards,
Matthias
