"svn log -v" : What is 'R' action?

From: Mark Reibert <svn_at_reibert.com>

I merged some changes on branch A to branch B via a working copy on
branch B. Pretty straightforward; the command was conceptually:

svn merge -r x:y http://blabla/repo/branches/A <wc_path>

This merge only added directories and files to branch B. "svn st" looked
good - all files were "A +" showing additions with history. So I
checked in.

Now "svn log -v" shows the top-level directory of the merge as 'A', but
everything else - directories and files - have an action of 'R'. Here is
a sanitized piece of the output:

Changed paths:
    A /branches/B/foo (from /branches/A/foo:1407)
    R /branches/B/foo/bar (from /branches/A/foo/bar:1407)

and so on. The only discussion I can find in the turtle book is in the
context of "svn up", where 'R' means "replaced". This does not make
sense in the context of "svn log" for dirs/files that were added.

So what is the 'R' action in "svn log -v"?

Server is v1.2.3 (Linux), client is v1.4.5 (Win32).
