Sorry for being so annoying, but any change in the structure, besides
add, that will be effected in more than one tree will cause this, right?

No offense meant. Just wanted to understand the situation.

Anyway, Garret, from what I read in the bug report you are working on it
right now for 1.5. Do I understand it correctly, that after your
significant fix / new feature you can do all sorts of structural
changes, e.g. moving directories, and still can automatically merge?

What is the best guess for the release date of the 1.5 release? First
half of '07 or second half?

Thanks for working on this missing feature. We are really looking
forward to see it added.

Cheers,
Mariano
