Unfortunately I recently discovered that it does not seem to do what
you might expect. For example it nuked my mailer.conf on one machine,
and my /etc/namedb/named.conf (!!!) on another machine.

Me, too. I lost exactly those two files during recent updates on two machines, using -Ui to mergemaster.

After restoring them from back-up, I've added them to the exclude list in mergemaster.rc as

 IGNORE_FILES='/etc/motd /etc/namedb/named.conf /etc/mail/mailer.conf'

Until I saw your post and the other responses, I had just assumed that I'd been somehow careless when running mergemaster. But now it looks like a bug. I've been using -Ui for mergemaster for a while now, but only seem to have experienced this problem recently.
