Moved to the dev list because it is likely more relevant there:

Not sure about "faster and more conveniently", but I just tried and was
successfully able to execute the command "mythepg" from commandline. I
am unsure at the moment what this particular program does differently,
short of the slightly more extensive display and the manualization of
the conflict resolution..

Point? While this is a good alternate tool, I don't think mythepg's
weaknesses warranted such an expenditure of effort on a *new* tool when
the energy could have been put into improving the old tool (mythepg)..
