Hah!  :-)  So, why don't you just take it back?  Nobody _needs_ M$.
Use of M$ software is a choice -- all you have to do to not use it is to
open your mind to the many alternatives.

Who cares?  You said you want to ensure that "the tip of one branc is
identical to the tip of another branch".  Make it so the easy fool-proof
way and then afterwards you can look at the resulting diff if you still
wish to see what was different about it beforehand.
