   * Make a no-WC reintegrate command, that performs the reintegrate and commits it, and then
does the record-only straight into the repo. This work-flow is possible because typically
there should be no conflicts when reintegrating; bail out if there are. It might be hard without
a WC, might need some Subversion library re-architecting.
   * Make the "sync merge" code recognize the reintegration revision without having to record-only
it on the branch. Either store a special marker in the svn:mergeinfo at reintegrate time,
or deduce the fact at sync-merge time. Difficult I know.
