I think he means this:

    <<<<<<< .mine
    moona
    ||||||| .r1
    foo
    =======
    bar
>>>>>>> .r2

Both the existing format and the format that I think is wanted are
produced by the traditional diff3 program. The existing format looks
like the output from "diff3 -m -E .mine .r1 .r2", while the desired
format is more like the output from "diff3 -m -A .mine .r1 .r2".
