I think the most appropriate tool would be org-merge-driver.  But I'm
not sure how reliable it is.  That said, what might be nicer is if you
treat the external tool bits generically.  Then people can choose their
own tools in the future; also that will probably be less work for you
since you don't have to figure out the details of the external merging
tool yourself.

What I'm after is having all the Unison config bits on Worg, then people
choose how they want to use it:
1. plain sync,
2. sync with merging (with their own choice of tools)

I or someone else could then add the Dropbox like, and "version control
(Git) way" of syncing.  This would then be a fairly complete FAQ on
synchronisation questions.  Does that seem feasible to you?

Thanks a lot,
