Make multiple invocations of 'svn merge' from an invocation of
'svnmerge.py merge' behave like the combined merge in cases where an
'svn merge' produces a local modifications which interfere with a
subsequent 'svn merge'.

As svnmerge.py runs only in clean working copies, the only possible
local modifications are those produed by svnmerge.py itself: here we
*REALLY* want --force.  See the following message and surrounding
email thread:

  (action_merge, action_rollback): Add the --force to invocation of
   the Subversion command-line binary's 'merge' command.
