Whilst this is being considered, we should be aware that there is another
propchange API change required.
Currently propchanges are represented as "Set value to X". We need to change
this to "Change value from A to B" to make merging possible. (Currently
propchange merging is extremely naive - a propchange to an already modified
property always conflicts, even when it should not)
