Can you specify what problems you are having with branch-to-branch
merges? You shouldn't have any problem with that use case.

I believe that Giovanni Bajo introduced svnmerge.py to the GCC
project, which is 100,000+ revisions. Giovanni regularly monitors
changes to svnmerge.py from a performance perspective so it should
work ok for you on very large repositories.
