Instead, I do a simple Merge, leaving the Revision range blank. The Merge
seems to work, my trunk files now look just like the branch. However, the
log file of the Working Copy (in trunk) doesn't have any of the entries
from the branch.

After you do any merge, the commit log messages from the merged revisions
get added to the topmost entry in the "recent messages" list in the commit
dialog. Is that what you're asking for?

Or, when you're looking in the "show log" dialog, there is a checkbox to
"included merged revisions", where you can see the log messages (but not
the list of modified files) for each merged revision. Is THAT what you're
looking for?

If neither of these, please be more specific what you want to do, what you
want to happen when you do that, and what happens instead.
