Does this look reasonable (y/n)?

i have quite a common question i think but my google skills didn't bring
up anything decent. If you use binary freebsd-update to upgrade between
major releases it starts comparing config files at some point. After the
manual merges it start's "automerge" and asks you:

Does this look reasonable (y/n)?

for every file. If you answer n freebsd-update bails out (after working
for like ages getting patches/files etc.) So wouldn't it be nice to give
the user a chance to resolve the merge or at least ask if the user
really wants to quit the upgrade.

Am i missing something here?
