I don't like the %merge <...> syntax either.  It's an oddball special
case for <...>, and I tripped over it again while installing my recent
POSIX-compatibility fixes.

Would anyone object if we changed that syntax by dropping the < and >?
E.g., instead of "%merge <stmtMerge>" users would write "%merge stmtMerge".
