That's a problem in itself, since it leads to annoying commit diffs that
repeat other things, and it changes "git log" ordering in confusing ways
(makes it seem like mainline's development is Philip's and when happened
on master during this time was done on a branch).

Probably because it's a merge commit, so its commit message contains
"merge" which is in bzrmerge-skip-regexp.  We should probably remove
"merge" from bzrmerge-skip-regexp (and use "backport" as the main magic
keyword) or at least refine it to only match things like "don't merge".
