My gut feeling is that the 'right' way to specify a merge is by giving
the revision to merge into, and a list of revisions to apply, suitable
for replay --list. Optional metadata on top of that can provide hints
for inexact patching. I don't think we have a tool which can generate
that list for any of the merge methods barring replay, though.
