> WC_PATH_HAS_MISSING_CHILD is true if WC_PATH is missing an immediate child
Does the phrase "and the merge would affect a child" apply to the parameter as a whole? It sounds like it's asking the caller to determine whether the diff would have affected a missing child in some cases but not in other cases. (I haven't tried to see whether the caller actually does make that determination in the other cases.) More concretely: if WC_PATH is missing an immediate child because the child is switched or absent from the WC, or due to a sparse checkout, then I think the caller should pass TRUE only if the diff would affect that child. Maybe that's what you meant already.
