I still don't see the potential problem. If you do svnmerge, svn commit,
all is fine, right? The problem *only* arises if you do svnmerge,
svn up, svn commit - and clearly, you shouldn't do that. If, on commit,
you get a conflict, you should revert all your changes, svn up, and
start all over with the merge.
