If you tell 'svn merge' to merge a whole directory, there's no way to
have the command pay attention to some differences and ignore others.
The merge command is really very simple: "compare two trees, and apply
the resulting patch to my working copy". No filters, no fancy
switches, no frills.

However, since the result of 'svn merge' is a bunch of local edits in
your working copy, you're free to review and undo any number of the
changes, before you commit.
