I have to support that. I got exactly that complaint from two users: Why do I 
need two commands?

What I’d prefer would be to have the extension checking if it can rebase or 
merge without conflicts, and if it can’t, tell the user that it got a new head 
which requires manual merging.

Essentially it is a merge/rebase with a safety net and no ui clutter (anything 
which would require user interaction is avoided).

Best wishes,
