      Description

      If you're merging a revision range that involves directory rearrangement, 'svn
      merge --dry-run' will show a bunch of "skipped target" messages when dealing
      with changes within directories that the merge commnad *would* add.  However, if
      you run the real 'svn merge' command, there are no warnings at all.  The
      directories are created just fine, and the changes within them are happily applied.
      
      If I get time, I'll write a repro script to demonstrate.
