Hurray! Thanks for re-rolling. I've left a couple of comments below, I 
had hoped this would be the final version but I've realized that the way 
you've rearranged the error handling for apply and merge options is not 
a good idea (see below). Apart from that I'm happy.

Sounds good

The "else" clause should have braces because the "if" cause requires 
them (see Documentation/CodingGuidelines). I don't think it is worth 
re-rolling just for this though.

This makes --rebase-merges without an option override 
rebase.rebaseMerges - good.

This isn't a new change but having thought about it I'm not sure moving 
this code is a good idea. If the user runs

	git -c rebase.updateRefs=true rebase --whitespace=fix --exec "make test"

then instead of getting an message saying that they cannot use apply and 
merge options together they'll get a message suggesting they pass 
--no-update-refs which wont fix the problem for them.
