No, we don't. It's a lot of code that needs to be written. When it's
done it's done. I've no idea how far completion goes, but given that
I've heard no signals of it being done (and given the fact that a
minor release needs 4 weeks of soak time, modulo any significant last
minute changes) we're rapidly progressing to 2007.

There will probably be some migration effort involved when moving from
svnmerge.py to the newly built in merge tracking functionality.
(svnmerge.py is located in the tools/client-side directory in the
subversion source tree)

Given that SVK is distributed (and that I do not know anything about
how it records its merge tracking), there may be a lot more effort
involved with svk, or it may not even be possible (due to the
centralised nature of svn).
