I see you now renamed it, and I will update the docs. But reintegrate
merge is not such a common event. In the life of a branch you might do
many sync merges from trunk, but only one reintegrate at the end. So a
more useful menu entry would be a real 'Merge all' which syncs the
branch with all unmerged revisions from its copy-from URL, much the
same as the CLI does.
