[Important: Patch 1 fixes a (minor) regression in 2.20 relative to
2.19...but it also modifies a translated string.  I'm not sure what the
right step we want to take there is.  If you want me to submit it
separately and also resubmit the rest of this series to depend on the
separated first patch, let me know.]

This series continues the work of making rebase more self-consistent
by removing inconsistencies between different backends.  In
particular, this series focuses on making the merge machinery behave
like the interactive machinery (though two differences between the am
and interactive backends are also fixed along the way), and ultimately
removes the merge backend in favor of reimplementing the relevant
options on top of the interactive machinery.

Differences since v2 (full range-diff below):
  - Addressed feedback from both Phillip and Dscho
  - Added five new patches; the biggest change is still the final patch
    but it should be a little easier to review now.
  - Added a patch fixing a very recent regression in the incompatible
    options error message
  - Documented and fixed the inconsistency in how different rebase backends
    handle --skip relative to the post-rewrite hook
  - Added a patch defining the linearization order and enforcing it,
    getting rid of an age-old TODO
  - Added a patch which took a slightly confusing diff hunk from the
    previous final patch, and give it its own commit message explaining
    why the drop from a triply-nested if block to a doubly-nested
    if-block still keeps all necessary checks in place.
  - Rebased to latest master

    -    Interactive rebases are implemented in terms of cherry-pick rather than
    -    the merge-recursive builtin, but cherry-pick also calls into the recursive
    -    merge machinery by default and can accept special merge strategies and/or
    -    special strategy options.  As such, there really is not any need for
    -    having both git-rebase--merge and git-rebase--interactive anymore.
    +    As part of an ongoing effort to make rebase have more uniform behavior,
    +    modify the merge backend to behave like the interactive one, by
    +    re-implementing it on top of the latter.
     
    -    Delete git-rebase--merge.sh and have the --merge option be implemented
    -    by the now built-in interactive machinery.

    -    Note that this change fixes a few known test failures (see t3421).
    +    This results in a few deliberate but small user-visible changes:
    +      * The progress output is modified (see t3406 and t3420 for examples)
    +      * A few known test failures are now fixed (see t3421)
    +      * bash-prompt during a rebase --merge is now REBASE-i instead of
    +        REBASE-m.  Reason: The prompt is a reflection of the backend in use;
    +        this allows users to report an issue to the git mailing list with
    +        the appropriate backend information, and allows advanced users to
    +        know where to search for relevant control files.  (see t9903)
     
         testcase modification notes:
           t3406: --interactive and --merge had slightly different progress output
    -             while running; adjust a test to match
    +             while running; adjust a test to match the new expectation
           t3420: these test precise output while running, but rebase--am,
                  rebase--merge, and rebase--interactive all were built on very
                  different commands (am, merge-recursive, cherry-pick), so the
                  tests expected different output for each type.  Now we expect
                  --merge and --interactive to have the same output.
           t3421: --interactive fixes some bugs in --merge!  Wahoo!
    -      t3425: topology linearization was inconsistent across flavors of rebase,
    -             as already noted in a TODO comment in the testcase.  This was not
    -             considered a bug before, so getting a different linearization due
    -             to switching out backends should not be considered a bug now.
    -      t5407: different rebase types varied slightly in how many times checkout
    -             or commit or equivalents were called based on a quick comparison
    -             of this tests and previous ones which covered different rebase
    -             flavors.  I think this is just attributable to this difference.
           t9903: --merge uses the interactive backend so the prompt expected is
                  now REBASE-i.
