Forked off issue833.

Could I get an investigation and explanation for why this is the case? I
imagine it has something to do with conflict marking being done on a
primitives level, but why do the sides get flipped around?

Might be an easier milestone than issue833

Indeed this needs a concrete counter-example. I have observed that the 
order is different between patch formats, but since these are 
completely different implementations this is not too surprising and 
not a problem in practice. I am minded to close this as "works-for-me" 
(but we don't have a status for that).
