Sure, that would be OK with me. You'd have --diff-merges=none to get
the current behavior, and probably make --no-diff-merges an alias for
that.

Mine is in 'next', so there is no rebuilding it on top of anything else
without a revert. But I don't see any particular reason to do that
versus just changing the behavior on top. What's in 'next' is generally
not rewound, but the behaviors are not cemented with respect to
backwards compatibility.
