Filtering changes to svn:mergeinfo properties

At my company we use subversion for about 8 month now. Our repository grows quite quickly - we have made about 15.000 commits so far. Since we share quite a lot of code between our projects, we use merging *A LOT*. Currently we are in the situation where merges to/from our library of shared code result in changing of around 300 directories with explicit merge info.

It is now extremely difficult to see actual code changes among all those svn:mergeinfo property changes.

We would like to have an ability to filter these changes in the Tortoise SVN UI - the most important part is the panel with modified files list in the log window.

I understand that the problem should be probably solved in the underlying subversion libraries, but it seems it will not happen soon (I have already asked about it on the subversion users mailing list - http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1065&dsMessageId=1841801)

At this moment this our *top* usability problem with subversion/Tortoise.

Do you see any chances to solve it just in the UI layer of Tortoise? Maybe a simplfied solution to filter all items where there is only a property change?
