The Subversion 1.5 client will not create or set mergeinfo properties
with a 1.4 repository. At least not when merges are performed. I
might have seen someone suggest that a rename creates and commits
these properties, but I have not seen confirmation or an issue filed.

I do not think you need to. The Subclipse repository, hosted at
tigris, runs SVN 1.3. It does not have any mergeinfo properties being
created. And I use 1.5 as client exclusively.

AFAIK, no one has asked to have svn:mergeinfo excluded from diff output.
