Is a baseless merge a merge with two branches that do not have a
common ancestor? That is, if we want to merge the branches A and B and
git-merge-base --all A B do not return any commits, is that a baseless

If that is the case then my merge code handles baseless merges
fine. Or, it is _supposed_ to handle them, I have done some basic
tests but it hasn't been tested thoroughly yet.

I don't know how the new read-tree code handles those cases.
