I don't know if this is what you call a "doppleganger patch", but a lot
of times when I try this, I have a problem because files with the same
name are added at some point in the history of both trees (even if the
current versions don't conflict), and this leads to the spinning
conflict resolution.

Commonly seen with files named Makefile and the like.
