Tyler, thanks for the reply. Sorry for being so late to pick this up.

svn merge will apply the differences to a working copy. So I need to
have a checked out copy of the particular path. Since I'm trying to
use this inside a post-commit hook, there is no checked out copy.

Of course, I can checkout, merge, and commit but then, since this is
invoked from a post-commit hook, this will happen for every commit
done in the branch. I was wondering whether anyone have taken a stab
at this problem in a different way.
