You might even be better off coming up with a *new* merge strategy
backend if you want to do this, without using much from the existing
code in merge-recursive.c at all (I've written off that code as
mostly unsalvageable long time ago, and thanked for whoever had a
clever idea to allow different strategy backend to be made without
disrupting the rest of the system).

After we gain more confidence with the rewrite, we can switch the
internally built-in backend used by different codepaths from
merge-recursive.c::merge_recursive() to the new thing.
