Sounds like a good idea.  I look forward to reading the patches.

I don't think that's a good idea.  I'm not sure what new users would
expect; in any case, making the command context-dependent just makes
the learning process harder imho.  And for experienced users, this
would be a bad regression.

An 'advice' message pointing the user to 'git merge --abort' might
make sense, though.

What do you think?
