[PATCH v5 0/7] difftool and mergetool improvements




Hi David, thanks for the comments.

I'm not really sure why I did the double-negative thing... It seems
obvious that it should be the other way around. I also unrolled the
loops and wrote a gui_mode function.

Good suggestions!

---

Changes since v4:

* Remove double-negative
* Change double-nested search loop into one for-loop
* Create gui_mode function
* Change an instance of "exclusive" to "mutually exclusive"

Changes since v3:

* Move nested for into a subshell so that IFS does not leak out of
  function

Changes since v2:

* Unsuppress output in t7610
* Make `get_merge_tool` return 1 on guessed so we don't have to deal
  with parsing '$guessed:$merge_tool'

Changes since v1:

* Introduce get_merge_tool_guessed function instead of changing
  get_merge_tool
* Remove unnecessary if-tower in mutual exclusivity logic
