Hm. I can't see a reason why reintegration (a special case of "merge
revision ranges", right?) couldn't support that option.

This issue has been raised in the Subversion Users list
(http://www.nabble.com/Re%3A-svn_client_merge_reintegrate%28%29---API-concerns-p15694693.html),
and seemed to be dismissed pretty quickly. But isn't this really a
necessary feature?

Seemed to me like reintegration is the quickest way to sync a branch to the
trunk (i.e. make the branch "caught up to" the trunk), and conflicts like
the kind I'm experiencing are not suited for automated merge algorithms.
It's much faster for me to manually resolve the conflicts and use features
like --record-only to do the appropriate bookkeeping.
