While I appreciate the work to resolve conflicts by "merging" multiple
PRs into one, it still feels odd to suggest to inject another task into
the pipeline. Wouldn't it be simpler if someone *with* commit privileges
would take on the task to do the merging at once ? (And yes, if no-one
who already has such privileges is willing or has time to do this, I'd
sign up for the job.)
