SVN didn't properly track merges until version 1.5, IIRC the last big
merge would have been the build system and at that stage at least one
of the main developers was still using 1.4 and we found it damaged the
merge data, so I did the merge of build with 1.5.  It may therefore be
the only merge with SVN merge data depending on when the recalcitrant
developer updated his SVN client.
