I didn't remember off hand, but checking the mergetools directory
suggests that kdiff3 is one (there's no call to check_unchanged). I
stopped checking after I found one.

I think that you may have misunderstood me. As I said, I've no
particular objections to changing the default (subject a few concerns
that may or may not still apply).

Having said that, the fact that the user has configured the merge tool
doesn't mean that he necessarily doesn't want to see the prompt. In a
part of my reply which you snipped, I said that it's sometimes the
particular file that's due to be resolved that might prompt a user to
want to skip launching the tool.

Either way, I think we shouldn't unconditionally override an explicitly
set mergetool.prompt and if we are (effectively) changing the default we
should probably update the documentation to say so as well. 

(Yes, I didn't introduce the first "no prompt" option patch and yes, I
have since changed my mind about whether I have it set, but that's just
a personal preference.)
