Could you give an example?

Yes, this one still looks good.

Style: "if (s == b)" would make it clearer that b is known (the current
branch) and s unknown. Giving the 'b' parameter a meaningful name
like 'this_branch' would help even more.

It's not clear to me what the "Also" is referring to here. How
* If there was a 'from' command, b->sha1 refers to
* that commit instead of the previous commit on the
* current branch, which is probably what no one
* Let's just reject attempts to merge a branch into
die("Can't merge a ...");

If the changes suggested above look good to you, I can amend locally.
Otherwise, I'll be happy to see what you come up with next.
