Err, that was a confusing unfinished message.  I meant the step to replace
the part that uses pipe to "git apply", more like

        git rev-parse M^2 >.git/MERGE_HEAD &&
	git cherry-pick --no-commit -m 1 M &&
        git commit -c M

The primary difference is that, because "apply -3" is not implemented yet,
this will help when the base has drifted too much from the corresponding
blob recorded in M^.
