Yes, I think this is enough as a description.
Couldn't find any RFE on the issue tracker, but not confident I searched hard enough.

To open a can of worms... if we had client-side hooks, we could write a hook that gets executed
before a merge to export $TAIL, then:

  svn merge -r$TAIL:HEAD /branches/branch-foo/ trunk/

Now I do more or less the same, keeping a "database" of last merged revisions for a given branch. It
is error prone and needs discipline.

If somebody is interested, I can put my HOWTO on my website or post it here.
