The idea sort of goes aginst the grain of what changelists actually are.
With a changelist, you essentially label a number of files in the
working copy, but in the merge scenario you're trying to use them to
limit the set of merge sources, i.e., a set of objects in the repository
(which may or may not have the same names in the working copy).
