Ah, right. But I'm planning to put some changes onto the branch.
Would 'merge --reintegrate' then still succeed? That is, were we
smart enough to have reintegrate look for a revision along the target
line with respect to which the source is "up to date", and use that
revision instead of HEAD?

In general, there's some fuzziness around the question of which
reintegrations should succeed and which should fail. Feel free to
suggest tests; I'm happy to write them. I'm trying to come up with a
list of obvious tests right now.

No, actually I think all the Merge Kluge stuff is obsolete now -- the
issues that required it are long closed. When I get a chance I'd like
to take Merge Kluge out entirely and see if everything still works.

Thanks for the review!
