Previous code was a little convoluted to follow logic
New code is shorter and logic is easier to follow

- Easier to see what happens when merge is successful
	and how --no-commit affects result
- Simpler to see that for-cycle will stop when merge_was_ok is set
- Easier to spot what logic will run through best_strategy
- Easier to see that in case of ret being 2, cycle will continue
- Keep a single break case (when automerge succedes and a revision will
  be created)
- Put together closing actions when automerge succedes if a revision
  will be created

I realized later that the call to write_tree_trivial could be included
in finish_automerge. Will include this change on v2 of the patch (if
there's a v2, depending on feedback).

In the body of the proposed commit log message, please finish each
sentence with a full-stop.

These bullets are all subjective, and do not add any value to what
you already said in the second sentence.

These are facts that readers can see for themselves and agree with.

Something like...

	The cmd_merge() function has a loop that tries different
	merge strategies in turn, and stops when a strategy gets a
	clean merge, while keeping the "best" conflicted merge so
	far.

	Make the loop easier to follow by moving the code around,
	ensuring that there is only one "break" in the loop where
	an automerge succeeds.  Also group the actions that are
	performed after an automerge succeeds together to a single
	location, outside and after the loop.

perhaps?

This introduces -Wdeclaration-after-statement, doesn't it?
Perhaps just declare the variable at the top of the for loop, next
to where the local 'ret' is declared?

Other than this single glitch, I think the code with this patch does
become easier to follow.

I like it.

It does! Let me take care of it. (Didn't know about DEVELOPER
environment variable up until... 5 minutes ago?)

Yep, make sense

Great!

Let me come back with v2 during the day.

Thanks!
