Aha, once I think outside the box of "textual conflicts" this makes
much more sense.

Sure, why not? (I doubt we would ever consider using '?' for
something else...)

I don't just mean the filenames, but the general concept of describing
the versions as being "from the repository" etc. Unfortunately it
doesn't seem like the code paths make it reasonable for the CLI's
callback to use a different message for update and for merge right
