The default operation in mergemaster is to do nothing, so if you're
going to choose the default the whole way, you might as well skip
running mergemaster at all.  Go back through mergemaster, and actually
pay attention to the changes.  On files you haven't modified, you will
be able to (i)nstall the new versions of those files, but otherwise
you will need to (m)erge them.
