  svk remembers where you've merged from in the svn repository so that  
you can do such things more easily. In fact, that's easy to do in svn  
as well once, it just doesn't remember so after that you have to know  
which revision number you last merged from.

  Here's a visual guide:


  Not that I have a lot of experience with svk, its just that I know  
that svk is built to more or less solve the particular problem you  
have working from svn branches. It also lets you associate a .svn free  
directory with an svn repository, so you can use it to do things like  
check in your /etc/httpd folder.

  svn 1.5 will deal with merging in an improved manner as well but I  
think the server has to be 1.5. But perhaps mirroring the 1.4 into a  
1.5, then using 1.5 might work?
