Disable backing out merges?

Seems a bunch of people are trying to use backout to deal with broken
merges. That doesn't work:

- it's not well-defined what the result should be
- we can't actually erase the problematic DAG edge

So it seems like we should just refuse to do it until we get a lot
smarter here.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
