I *think* I managed to write such a merge tool. I still need more testing 
and fixing. For example, if there is an actual file conflict, I'm handling 
it pretty badly right now (no conflict markers or anything).

Also, when merging 4.7 into master, it seems that if a .desktop file was 
only modified in 4.7, git will do the merge automatically, bringing those 
4.7 changes into master, without running the custom merge tool. Those 
changes would be undone again next time scripty runs.

But this seems promising anyway. Stay tuned :)
