Actually, the correct "except.." is when someone commits two (or more)
changes in less than max(treeStableTimer, SVNPoller.pollinterval).
That is, if you're polling every 5 minutes, a treeStableTimer of <5
minutes is useless.

We really need to have a flag that says "yes, merge" or "no, don't",
rather than mucking about with times.
