Re: Merge commit log messages

This was rather my suspicion. But much as Tortoise can sneak issue
management in under the covers, perhaps it can sneak in merge
tracking. It knows exactly what the merge was you did... it could
store that in a property and allow you to commit it.

The accurate but useless human comment "Merged in changes from
production hot patch to trunk (12332-12348)" would become

tsvn:merge = /myapp/branches/6.1.2@12332-12348

... except that it'd have to accompany a particular transaction.
which is where my knowledge of subversion & tortoise gets a bit fuzzy.
