    Simplified merge logic
    
    The logic for the merging is somewhat confusing. So I simplified it to
    be equivalent. I tested all my changes to ensure in practice they work.
    
    The first thing I did was test out which branch would occur for every
    possible value of 
    
    remoteheads->nextcommon->nextoption_commitBranchTTTATTFATFTATFFAFTTCFTFC
    FFTBFFFAUsing this truth table, I was able to deduce that if the second
    branch ran, the if statement for the first branch was false. Taking the
    inverse, it was then found many of the checks were redundant, so the if
    statement was rewritten to have each branch run under the same exact
    conditions, except each value is evaluated as little as possible.
    
    I hope you can approve of this and show me how to send it.
    
    Thank you.
