How to preserve history and log messages when merging?

My problem is following.
I'm working on a repository MyProj/Trunk. Then I've made a branch
MyProj/Branches/v0.1 which contains revisions 1..100. Later, some
bugfixing was performed. I used log messages to describe the nature of
the bug and refer to the bug tracking system.

        rev. 101: Bug 12345 fixed
        rev. 102: Bug 12346 fixed
        rev. 103: Bug 12347 fixed

Then, I'd like to merge those 3 revisions into the branch. If I
followed the process suggested in Subversion manual, I'd end up with
rev.101 in the branch which contans all the changes from rev.101..103
in the trunk.

        rev. 101: Merged rev. 101..103 from the trunk

But I need to exactly preserve history and log messages in the branch,
therefore I have to merge and commit one by one, manually copying log
Could you please give some hints how to automate this process?

Thank you,
Andrey Svinarev
