In this particular case the merge is entirely of my own making. Merges
will show up in the console. There may be other occasions when merge
conflicts might arise (although I can't think of any right now).

At the moment we can't abort the test run anyway, because we lack
Levente's #snapshot:andQuitWithExitCode: work in the Inbox. So while I
take your point, I'm happy with the current state of affairs, for the
moment at least.

We definitely do need a command line processor in trunk, at any rate. Loads of the CI work is working around our lack thereof.
