I'm disappointed you feel that way. The need to edit conflicts comes up
about half the time, and in those cases I end up feeling that I have
wasted my time by even trying to use TortoiseMerge for this purpose. In
time, I will become irritated enough with this inadequacy to discontinue
use of the tool.

Your idea of enabling saves with conflicts only helps a little.
