I don't know what you mean by `not as much as you expected'.
The results you demonstrated seemed entirely consistent with what I
expected and it is precisely that kind of merging makework that my
approach avoids.

Doing extra merge work for the benefit of cosmetic redaction of commit
logs (which is IMO itself of doubtful value) seems an absurd tradeoff.
Merging substantial conflicting changes is one of the most demanding
and error-prone programming tasks.  I'm astonished that you're
seriously advocating a workflow that prefers to have humans running
around fixing up mistakes made by computers.

However I think that this conversation between you and me isn't going
anywhere useful.  We're going round in circles.

Would anyone else like to comment ?

Guillem, do you have an opinion about the use of git or (preferably!)
about the actual code ?
