Nope, sorry. WinMerge won't implement three way merges:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=990464&group_id=13216&atid=363216
(there's an even older issue open for the same...)

and it won't implement applying patches:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=695741&group_id=13216&atid=363216

I got tired of waiting for these features and having every attempt to
even discuss this rejected, so I started TortoiseMerge which *can* do
those things.
