For whatever little it's worth, I pointed out this set of threads to
the SVN devs.  A few mentioned that they'll likely be making it a
priority to revamp libsvn_wc to have centralized metadata/text-bases
after 1.5.0 is out.  (If we stick to our typical stabilization window,
it probably means we're talking June before 1.5.0 is final; but trunk
may get a bit disruptive a little bit before that once we enter RCs
around late April/early May.)  But, if such a feature means that much
to folks here, I wouldn't let that stop you from contributing now.
However, getting merge tracking done right and out the door has been
the priority for far too long amongst most SVN devs; so we may see a
huge backlog of improvements once 1.5 gets out.  -- justin
