I understand. Thanks for the man page snippet.

At the risk of drifting away from Config::Model, couldn't ucf propose
by default the three-way merge if the configurations files are
"smallish" ? (with the option for the maintainer to specify --two-way)

By "smallish", I mean below a defined number of lines (say 1000 lines).

All the best
