I think load loads in the new code - when there are conflicts -  
loading (new) version wins.

Merge does something similar - but provides a merge tool for letting  
the user resolve the conflicts first.

Adopt (I think) makes that version the base version for changes going  
forwards.  Kind of like branching off in a new direction.  I think  
its good for recovering from coding down a blind alley and deciding  
to back up and start over from some point.

Mostly I use save, load and merge.
