FYI there is a branch being integrated with Git and Mercurial support. A
lot of the stuff you write about is actually being developed, so please
have a look at the archive and the code base before jumping to another

Also the draft I revere is about resolving conflict in a generic way - this
is the plumbing to integrate such tools with a nice GUI.

We are not trying to do the version control, diffing, merging ourselves.
But we need a mechanism to show the user when merging failed.
