I know I said the patches looked okay earlier, but I just noticed something...

We allow folks to set GIT_MERGE_VERBOSITY to change how much output
they get.  A setting of 1 should only show conflicts or major
warnings.  2 is the default and adds a few more messages (e.g.
"Auto-merging $PATH", "Adding $PATH" for one-sided adds, etc.), higher
levels show even more.

Anyway this output message is correct to use level 1 since this is a
conflict, but...

I think this should use level 2.

and so should this one (in fact, I'm tempted to say these last two
should use level 3, but since it looks like a command users may have
difficulty finding on their own, I'm okay with going with 2).
