Per 'man gitattributes', git understands a 'union' merge driver, which
takes lines from both versions of a file rather than leaving conflict
markers (the way the default text merge driver behaves).  It may not
leave the merged items in any particular order, but would certainly be
easier to review, since by default, all NEWS merges should take all
entries from both branches.

Or maybe it's time to write a custom merge driver for NEWS, similar to
the custom merge file for ChangeLog?
