Yup looks like an oversight. The nesting already shows that it's a merge and
what revision made the merge. But we don't show the direction of the merge.

I've coded up a trivial change to add a reverse-merge attribute on the logentry
element in this case. e.g.
<logentry revision="13" reverse-merge="true">

Once I write a test for it I'll commit it.

Given that it changes the XML output, I probably wouldn't backport this to 1.8.x.
