Hmm, perhaps, but is "do we prompt to give a chance to the user to
say 'no, I am not interested in running the tool to that path'" the
only interactivity in the overall end-user experience in using the
mergetool?  To end-users, both interaction with the mergetool
front-end and interaction with individual back-end taken together
would comprise the whole end-user experience, so "--interactive"
option that is implied by "-i" short-cut may make them expect a
behaviour from the backend that is more interactive than without,
which would not be the case, so....
