Note that "the following" is clean-merged with diff3, so you actually
refuse to use most of the current version control systems? The
difference is 2 extra lines (one common line would be enough though),
which fool diff3 into adding more "section breaks" so it never notices
the "conflict". I don't find that much better, just inconsistent with
itself. See the "PPS" of my previous mail for diff3 -m output.

Yours, Peter.
