I suppose then that I would like to understand exactly what gitmerge.el is
adding to the picture. I've managed some pretty crazy merge scenarios as a
contractor, and it never required building custom merging tools before.

So we run the opposite risk of people "just using gitmerge.el", but not
understanding what is actually happening. If it works for you, that's great;
but if I properly understand what is being done, then I can find a workflow
that might suit me better.
