Man, you've really got some kind of thing against update -- first you screw
up its semantics in "fai", now you argue for dropping it from the help...

It's _not the same_ as star-merge when used in the same context.

Does that mean newbies need it?  I don't know -- but certainly the name
"update" is a lot more newbie friendly than "star-merge" for the simple
"update my tree" use.
