This invites a natural "does --ignore-merges exist, and if so what
does it do?"  Why not to have "--[no-]ignore-merges" as a separate
entry immediately after the existing "-m" instead?

That is,

	--[no-]ignore-merges::

		`--no-ignore-merges` is a synonym to `-m`.
		`--ignore-merges` countermands an earlier `-m` that
		is either explicitly or implicitly given.

or something along the line, perhaps?

This explicitly says "I do not want to see diff for merges" ...

... and that is honored here?  Good.
