I have committed a small but significant feature to trunk:

Merging a cherry-pick of an edit from a moved file to the file's corresponding pre-move location on an older branch now works out of the box without annoying conflict prompts (beyond a possible text merge conflict, of course).

svn.apache.org/r1836409

Here is an example of what this new cherry-picking merge behaviour in looks like: paste.apache.org/hoQB

A tree conflict occurs because after Subversion 1.7 was branched from trunk, svn's own main C file was renamed in trunk from "main.c" to "svn.c". With my change from today, the resulting tree conflict is now automatically resolved. Previously, the merge stopped after the step "Tree conflict on 'subversion/svn/svn.c':" with SVN complaning that it didn't know how to handle the merge 🙄
