One trick I've used to separate good automatic merges from ones that
need human interaction is to run both the 'patch' and 'merge' commands,
which use different approaches to determining the result.

If they agree, take it.  To apply the changes between file1 and file2
to filez:

        diff -au file1 file2 | patch -f filez
        merge -q filez file1 file2

                  I won't rest till it's the best ...
