Of course.  Gnus is the special one because it currently benefits from
a very nice setup.  For Org, I don't think it can get much worse.

Actually, for Gnus it seems not particularly easy, because two-way
merges like those Miles currently does don't seem to fit into the Bazaar
model nicely at all and because merging two separate package histories
into one seems to fit even worse.
