--no-prompt is designed to remove the prompt before launching a
mergetool. This is because it is mostly pointless but does provide a
convenient point to interrupt (C-c) a large multifile conflict

It was never supposed to be a batch mode switch. By it's very nature
mergetool is interactive so I don't see any advantage to pretending

If the documentation indicates otherwise then it's my opinion that
this is what needs to be fixed.
