      Description

      Improve heuristics for divining a merge source for the 'svn merge -cN' operation
      per the comments inlined into the svn_client__suggest_merge_sources()
      implementation (in libsvn_client).  Order the list of recommendations by:
      
      1) The most recent existing merge source.
      2) The copyfrom source (which will also be listed as a merge
         source if the copy was made with a 1.5+ client and server).
      3) All other merge sources, most recent to least recent.
      
      Determining the order of application of merge sources requires a new RA API.
