Ugh. So doing things this way will only make future merges harder,
because now the same lines have been changed in both branches.

Yes, right now the changes are identical. But if one branch now makes
further changes in the same area, it can become very messy, and things
like this can make merging much harder. Because then two branches will
have changed the same lines *differently*.

Oh well. What's done is done. And it's just one fairly small commit,
so not a big deal. But in general, this kind of cherry-picking should
be avoided like the plague exactly because it tends to cause problems
