You're saying to "show log" on my branch or on trunk? I'm assuming you mean
the branch. This does work, but it doesn't help me in the merge dialog,
because the "Show log" button in the merge dialog shows the log of the
branch I'm merging FROM, which is the trunk. And from that location, you
cannot tell where you branched from.

Is there a reason why the svn:mergeinfo doesn't start out with 0-100 (as in
my last example)? What would it hurt to make it do this?
