I've proposed this feature in a couple different forms over the
years ;->. The most recent proposal was inspired by Perforce's
-am, -ay, and -at options: --accept={merged,yours,theirs} . And,
all i was looking for is what Jeremy has implemented. That's
also all Perforce implements.

Now, if it's possible for us to do even better, and do this at
the individual patch hunk level, even better! I think that is a
much bigger chunk of work, though.
