yes, okay, I could do that. But that means that I would have to deal with
two separate histories. One in trunk and one in branch.

Wouldn't it be very helpful if there would be a way from within svn to
include history information of merged-in files from other branches as
well, or is this impossible?

On trunk you can't get the FULL history of a file, I guess that's not the
intention of a developer, isn't it? I mean, if I look at changes a file
went through I want to see all of them, not only the one on trunk, IF

I could imagine that this is a quite usual scenario...

I don't see why subversion should not be capable of giving this extra

Looks like as if one would need to file a feature request for this??? :)

Anyway, thanks so far for this clarification.
