I think what I meant is, there's no way to revert just the merge. You
can revert, but you'll roll back not only the result of the merge, but
any local changes you had before the merge.

Of course, now that you mention it, there *is* a way: run the merge in
reverse. So maybe my whole point was wrong, oops.
