No, they are not:
[[[
Skip files added into tree-conflicted dirs (and don't notify).
Skip deletion of tree-conflicted nodes.
...
]]]

Firstly, it fixes a notification that I added wrongly, but I left some code
in a comment because we will most certainly want to use it if encountering a
persistent conflict, once we want to deal with that stuff.

Secondly, it skips the actual deletion if the delete was discovered to cause
a tree-conflict, which has an effect on notification, which is the reason
why I included that.

+1
But on certain changes it is good to review most relevant test suites to
find errors or understand situations. It helped me today ;)

So, you're not quite done with it yet, right? Let me know if you'd be happy
to continue on trunk (or whether you've completed it on the branch), see below.

There's just one case I found today that we'd break when merging as-is:
we've got per-victim conflict notification for update/switch, and we changed
the notification code to count them by the new tree_conflicted flag.
However, merge doesn't use that flag yet and displays tree-conflicts as a
"text-conflict" on the parent dir. The result can be seen in merge_tests.py
103 (on branch tree-conflicts-notify r33895): A tree conflict is counted as
a text conflict.

So do we want to tackle merge notification on trunk? I don't mind either
way. But we're slowly drifting farther and farther from trunk. And it's
slowly becoming a "let's do everything on the branch"-branch instead of an
"I just want to try this first"-branch. If no-one objects (or is quicker
than me), I'll reintegrate.
