Revert will revert the property change, but also revert any content changes if
you have the property on a file.

If the script your talking about is not svnmerge.py, then you may want to
consider moving over to this tool on any new branches.


It's being maintained by several people, including me, and there's an active
mailing list for development of it, so you'll spend less development time on it.
  It's also used on the Subversion repository itself.

Also, I imagine, that when svn itself includes a merge tracking feature,
somebody will write an import tool for svnmerge.py into the final version.
