Yes, this looks good.

I also just ran the non-RepoMerge.py procedure (earlier in this thread),
and I can see how things are non-interleaved. And this really would not
have been acceptable, I believe; it makes things much harder to analyze as
a manager and in code reviews and problem-resolution (when debugging
changes over time), etc. Alas, maybe I'm making more out of the problem
(that RepoMerge.py solves) then what really exists in reality because I'm
inexperienced with this sort of analysis with Subversion.

In any case, I'm quite thankful to have RepoMerge.py.

I might try this out later, haven't tried it out yet.
