Make the mergetool used with "meld" backend behave similarly to
how "vimdiff" beheaves by telling it to auto-merge parts without
conflicts and highlight the parts with conflicts.

    Enable auto-merge for meld to follow the vimdiff beharior
    
    Hi, the mergetool "meld" does NOT merge the no-conflict changes, while
    the mergetool "vimdiff" will merge the no-conflict changes and highlight
    the conflict parts. This patch will make the mergetool "meld" similar to
    "vimdiff", auto-merge the no-conflict changes, highlight conflict parts.
