http://www.orcaware.com/svn/wiki/Svnmerge.py#FAQ says how to migrate
from svnmerge.py to svn merge.
But I cannot find any evidence of svn merge being better than svnmerge.py.

Isn't the svn merge functionality still just foundational?
Is svn merge as easy/safe to use as svnmerge.py?
Is svn merge as easy to use as svnmerge.py regarding long lived
branches (where you want to continually merge changes both from the
branch to the trunk an vice versa)?

I think the --reintegrate option will be forgotten now and then. Will
this lead to grief?

Does todays 1.5.3 release change anything significant in this area?
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.5.3/CHANGES says that the merge
performance is greatly improved. Is the functionality itself better
than the functionality of svnmerge.py?

Is it time to migrate from svnmerge.py to svn merge?
