I agree but I want to fix something else at the same time where the
"something else" is a bit trickier.

I want changeset-application-with-conflicts to be cleanly composable
and somewhat decomposable.

That is, if I have a tree that contains diff3 markers, .rej, etc.  and
I do another star-merge or replay or whatever, I want the resulting
conflict markers to stack up cleanly and be independently removable.

The general idea being that one could then create a branch which
contained auto-merged sources, full of conflicts, but then people
could cooperate to resolve those, using arch as the coordination tool.
