You're the 2nd person to misunderstand the new feature. Maybe we should
change the release notes...

We don't have merge-tracking. All the new feature means is that if you
run

   'svn subcommand -rOLD foo.c'

and foo.c had a different name or location in rOLD, then the svn client
will "find" that old name and use it, rather than spewing an error about
how 'foo.c doesn't exist in rOLD'.

A lot of people have been burned by this in svn 1.0, when running 'svn
diff -rX:Y foo.c', for example, when foo.c was renamed at some point.
