RE: Ancestry for dummies

So let me boil down the question... in all my testing, I see no
difference in the outcome of merging regardless of whether
--ignore-ancestry is used. The only difference is whether a certain
merge was registered as a modify versus an add, but the content was
exactly the same.

So why does the merge command even have --ignore-ancestry? In what case
would this ever make a meaningful difference? Why isn't
--ignore-ancestry the default?
