We track no merge history (save for the fact that merged adds are done
as copies). Copy and Move operations can be traced backwards. See
the 'svnlook history' subcommand, for example.

Note that history can only be traced backwards right now. So while
you can follow one "tong" of a fork all the way back to the end of the
"handle", you'll have a hard time finding out that there are 4 such
tongs available.

And that's all I have say regarding that bad analogy. :-)
