The scenario that usually triggers it is when I update a package with
a complex configuration like OpenNMS and end up with .rpmnew instances
for the files that have local changes.  In this case I don't care
about versioning, I just want to be able to see the lines I changed in
context with the new file and merge them unless the update has some
conflicting differences.  Meld by itself handles that pretty well.
And git is a little too weird for me - when I am doing version control
I want a central authority.
