Merging Branch back to Trunk

From: Alexey Kulikov <a.kulikov_at_gmail.com>

Let's say you've got a project in a Subversion repository, and you've
created a branch of trunk, in branches/newfeature. You've been merging
changes from trunk to branches/newfeature for awhile, but now you're
done with that work and you're ready to move all of the changes in the
branch back to the trunk. What's the best way to do this?

You can follow the directions in the Subversion book, but that leads
to a huge number of conflicts. Is there a cleaner way? If you've
merged everything from the trunk into the branch, then what you really
need is to just move the latest stuff in the branch into the trunk,
without worrying about conflicts at all.
