The most annoying part is probably where to put the output, since
merging is more or less defined to do one of:

- update HEAD and return 0
- update MERGE_HEAD and return 1

I'm not sure how much flexibility is worth having.  Would it be
sufficient if you had an option, e.g. -Xresult-ref=refs/heads/foo, that
changes it to:

- update refs/heads/foo and return 0
- return 1, not updating any refs

That would mean that it would only work for noninteractive use.  In the
conflicting case, the driving script would need to remember what it
wanted to merge so as have the information when finally committing.
