So, there we have it: we're already doing overlapping stuff. For example,
I've also added a return parameter to check_tree_conflict() on the branch
some days ago. I see you've added stuff entirely differently.

Steve, Julian, I must admit I don't know how to deal with our concurrency.
Do you have some guidance for me?

We're currently changing the signatures of the same functions. Not good.
Should I rather go back to the diff-repos-wc branch (dirs_same_p) for a few
days and then come back and merge tree-conflicts-notify into what you've
done until then, if at all necessary?

Well, by now it's too late to start something proper. Sigh. Until tomorrow,
