I've heard that before, but I don't see how looking at git helps
anything here.  If the issue is about conflict resolution, git's
ultimate answer when things get complicated is "punt it to a human",
just like every other revision control system out there.  I don't think
we want that when dealing with a set of mailbox changes (in my view,
git's magic is how it manages sets of changes).

I will note that I've been doing shared calendars using iCloud with my
wife for a while, and the algorithm there seems to be:

a) pick a winner
b) let everyone know what the winning data is

Seems to work out fine in practice.
