Also note that, theoretically, it's better to do it in one-go as you'd end
up with less conflicts. This is why svnmerge does it that way (and goes
through large extent to automatically minimize the number of merge
operations it performs). But if you know what you're doing, you can merge as
much as you want at each go.
