If you had a previous merge-branch (because something went wrong last
time, and you just re-start the whole thing), you really want to _first_
force the branch to "master", and then create the new merge-branch.
Also, the last "git checkout -f merge-branch" will be pretty much zero
time, because the stuff is already at the right point, so it will
basically end up just re-doing the symlink.
So I did it that strange way for a reason.
