I just pushed out these four commits. Basically they let a libgit user use the functionality which was hardwired to git-merge-tree till now. The idea is from Dscho, so I hope the patches will be welcomed. ;-)

(I did not sent out any patches for now, since my ls-files parseopt patch isn't in yet, either.)

Ah and we talked about (in case I'll be home during the summer) if I should re-apply for git in GSoC. Basically I don't want to do it, but I'm very happy that my ex-mentor even recommends me not doing so. Here are his lines:

These lines made me happy, really. :-)
