Oh, I guess I mis-read the book.
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.ref.svn.c.merge.html> lists
an extra, optional argument for svn merge ([WCPATH]), but none of the
examples on the page use that; I'd assumed it was like the other
commands which allow for working directly on a URL. Of course, if
that'd been the case, the book probably would've used a different
variable name, so now I'm just embarassed. :-)
