This is awesome.  In addition to the good reasons you gave, switching
merge_submodule() to use output() was one of several things on my todo
list since I think it'd be needed for remerge-diffs
(https://bugs.chromium.org/p/git/issues/detail?id=12) and might be
useful for merges in bare repos; thanks for tackling it.

Patches look good to me.  Having Leif's patch on top of these two
would be great.
