I like this way of thinking of it.

I think it'd be better to shorten this to:
  vi. There is a path in the way when trying to change from
SKIP_WORKTREE to !SKIP_WORKTREE.

The path in the way could be a file, a symlink, a directory, a
submodule, or whatever future types might be possible.  We don't
really care what kind of path is in the way, just that there is one.

You seem to be thinking only of content conflicts that are
representable with conflict markers.  There are content conflicts that
are not representable with conflict markers, and non-content conflicts
of various types.[1]  So, we need to keep unmerged as distinct from
having unstaged changes.

As above, we need to fix this to:

1. If the path exists and we intend to set SKIP_WORKTREE, then delete
the file only if the file is not unmerged and there are no unstaged
changes.

Why an error and why not update any other paths?

by "on disk", I think you mean "from the working tree", yes?  It does
still exist on disk in the git object directory, if people are willing
to look through all the loose/dangling objects to find one that "looks
right".  I helped a user or two do so precisely because of case F
hitting them.

Ok, I'll ignore your earlier comments about erroring out and not
updating any other paths then.

Ah, yeah.  I also wondered if I should have done something to share
more code with display_error_msgs(), which this function was mostly a
copy of (and which has the same problem).

An enum would definitely make it better.  I'll take a look, and see if
it makes sense to split it up.

I'm not sure how this condition covers split
indices/indexes/however-it-should-be-spelled, but I think split
indexes don't actually matter to this function because I don't create
or delete any index entries -- I merely toggle a single bit
(SKIP_WORKTREE) for an existing index.

I think we can map its return values to the enum we add.

Good point.

This also makes sense, though I'd be a bit surprised if performance
tracing for this function shows up anywhere.

Thanks for reviewing it!

[1] A whole bunch of examples of conflicts that are not representable
with conflict markers, and non-content conflicts of various types:

If a symlink points at different paths, then attempting to represent
the contents of the symlinks with conflict markers results in a
symlink that is unusable and confusing; instead the version of the
symlink from HEAD is left in the directory and we know it is unmerged
not by having unstaged changes but the higher order index entries.

If a binary path has been modified on both sides of history, then
adding conflict markers is not compatible with the binary nature of
the file.  Instead, the version of the binary file from HEAD is left
in the directory and we know it is unmerged due to the presence of
higher order index entries.

If a simple script did not exist in the merge base but was added on
both sides with identical contents, with one side of history marking
it as executable and the other not marking it executable, then there
is nothing for us to put conflict markers around.  Further, we can't
mark the mode on disk as conflicted in some fashion, we just have to
pick whether to mark the copy in the working directory as executable
or not.  Storing higher order entries in the index is the only way for
us to know it is unmerged.

If a simple non-binary, non-symlink file exists and has never been
marked executable and existed in the merge base and HEAD but was
deleted on the other side of history, there's not much for us to do
with conflict markers that would make sense.  We just leave the file
from HEAD in the working directory, and instead note the conflict via
higher order index entries (and in this case, there will be 2 instead
of the normal 3 higher order entries).

If a simple non-binary, non-symlink file was renamed by both sides of
history but did not have any content change (and wasn't ever marked
executable), then there is again nothing for us to do with conflict
markers.  We'll instead have 3 higher order index entries, but exactly
one for each path.  This case is like the others above in that we can
look at the presence of higher order index entries, but slightly
different because there will only be one higher order (stage > 0)
entry in the index for any affected path.
