I think I got us off-track with my expectation of ending the one case
with a conflicted index. But caring about that is even more unlikely. I
think Thomas's original patch is probably a happy medium.
As an orthogonal matter, we probably should reverse the order of
updating HEAD and the index/working tree, as it does not make much sense
to me to do the former if the latter is not possible (and that is the
case even with the current code).
