You can download the pdf for free - it's worth reading.

IMHO the svn:mergeinfo idea is flawed.  It doesn't handle
hierarchies with mixed --depth values at all - it should
at least handle merges to trees with non-infinity-depth nodes
by duplicating the mergeinfo for each non-infinity-depth node
from it's closest parent and not merging to the node.  The
observant committer would of course not commit such a thing
(and would set their depth to infinity on these nodes first).
