And in the case of merge commits on master: *deletion* of SVN merge 
properties (which is what was done some time ago on trunk when it was 
decided we didn't want them there) cannot be expressed in a git history.  
But using "unmerge" for the three commits in question (so they don't 
appear as merge commits in the git conversion) is one reasonable choice 
for how to represent it.
