I think we documented 'svn mergeinfo --from-source' after implementing it,
but before we changed the feature's syntax to have the source included as
part of the regular commandline arguments, as in 'svn mergeinfo SOURCE
[TARGET]'.  Regardless, there is not, nor ever was, a --from-source option
in a *released* version of Subversion.
