My mistake, I guess I went a little overboard trying to split my
contribution into digestable patches.

Thanks for catching this. I noticed that the originally behaviour is
buggy too: in the case where we're merging a commit and scissors are
printed from the `if (whence != FROM_COMMIT)` block, the original
behaviour would drop us into the else (COMMIT_MSG_CLEANUP_SPACE)
statement, which is undesired. With this fix, the message about `#`
_not_ being removed is now silenced in both cases.

Changes since V1:
	* Only check MERGE_MSG for a scissors line instead of all prepended
	  files
	* Make a variable static in merge where appropriate
	* Add passthrough options in pull
	* Add documentation for the new option
	* Add tests to ensure desired behaviour

Changes since V2:
	* Merge both patches into one patch
	* Fix bug in help message printing logic
