Yes (I've been away a lot during the summer, so I probably missed this). I
find the arguments against this idea rather weak. Getting misspelled
properties in the repository 8*) must be more annyoing than having to use
--force in some situations.

unmergable file. Just one example.

I'm +0 for this patch.
