A merge goes something like this:

    1) do the merge into my project tree

    2) what-changed --diffs > +to-review

and then I review the merge, using "+to-review" to guide the process.

In that procedure, at least, I find the new-files output very useful.
(I don't, however, have any strong feelings about the default.  I
wouldn't mind having to type an extra option name.)
