<ghudson> The diff/merge thing reminds me of the "marriage penalty" in
tax law, where it all depends on what you think is "fair."

<sussman> yah, we have a 3 way tension.

<sussman> it's most convenient to have diff act one way, merge act
another way

<sussman> and it's also convenient to have them act the same way!

<ghudson> Clearly users should be required to type in a paragraph about
what they're really trying to do before they can run any command. Then
we can pick the most intuitive behavior for them. :)

<sussman> exactly!
