Actually, after my patches both git-difftool and git-mergetool get this
right since list_merge_tool_candidates lists vimdiff and gvimdiff.

I wonder if it would be better to make these single-line scripts instead
of symlinks:

    . "$MERGE_TOOLS_DIR"/vimdiff

where we make git-mergetool--lib.sh export:

    MERGE_TOOLS_DIR=$(git --exec-path)/mergetools
