True, but the point is that in both cases it's possible that someone 
merges a specific commit twice. Maybe subversion also handles this case 
well; I have never tried.

One may get the same problem when merging two-way which is necessary 
with long-lived branches (the branch merges commits from trunk, and 
later the complete branch is merged back into trunk). Or those branches 
have to 're-based' (not a real subversion action is it?) but then you 
can't merge from them anymore.
