Now that I'm trying it out, the effect of cherry-picking on Misc/NEWS is
catastrophic.  hg wasn't very friendly (producing obviously spurious
conflicts), but at least it was reasonably easy to correct the
situation.  git seems to leave Misc/NEWS in an extremely messy state.
For example, here is the merge diff I'm getting right now:
https://gist.github.com/pitrou/37dd07d0136644266ca012e979c27847

Good luck spotting devising how to fix Misc/NEWS after that (apart from
retrieving the previous version and adding the NEWS entry manually)...

This is actively being worked on and I'm hoping to have it resolved in the next week or so (I really don't see it going passed the end of this month, but I would be absolutely shocked if it isn't fixed by May).
