But the merge policies and what gitmerge.el does (and bzrmerge.el did
before it) were defined by people who are neither non-lovers of Git
nor are prisoners of the CVS-like way of thinking.  Those policies are
determined by the project needs first and foremost, not by what the
tools can or cannot do well.

So I don't see how this conclusion could be right.

But again, without having a list of "surprising" practices, it's hard
to reason about this.
