Yes. But even if TMerge doesn't show a conflict there, it still could be
a conflict: if TMerge is set to ignore eols/whitespace changes, then
lines that are conflicted won't show up as conflicted if that conflict
is only due to ignored changes (eol's, whitespaces). In that case, you
would see the = lines instead.
