The question about what to put into the index was another issue, and
it's good to hear that you seem to approve of my logic on that one.
Thanks.  :-)

However, my question here about what to write to the working tree for
a rename/rename(2to1) conflict in one particular corner case still
remains.  Should a two-way merge be performed even if it may result in
nested sets of conflict markers, or is that a sufficiently bad outcome
for the user that it's the one case we do want to write colliding
files out to different temporary paths?
