It might be worth checking the sources to see if that's actually what the
command does.

I've always been kinda nervous about this behavior (because I often use it to
re-merge linux patches which have been only partially applied upstream), and
so tend to watch it with a jaundiced eye, but so far it's never actually done
anything bad.

For me, duplicate suppression of some sort is absolutely necessary,
but I usually use `star-merge --three-way' anyway...
