Did you see my work in the merge plugin? Is there a reason my method was
not correct? Perhaps it was just too slow. My method was to get the list
of all revisions in the TO branch, and then search breadth-first into
the FROM branch until I found a revision which existed in both.

I know there was discussion about "slightly preferring mainline", but
other than fuzzy weighting, etc, I'm not sure how to implement that.

Mostly I'm just curious if there is something wrong about my merge code.
Some case that you know about that it would miss, etc.
