merge-strategies: avoid implying that "-s theirs" exists
The description of `-Xours` merge option has a parenthetical note that tells the readers that it is very different from `-s ours`, which is correct, but the description of `-Xtheirs` that follows it carelessly says "this is the opposite of `ours`", giving a false impression that the readers also need to be warned that it is very different from `-s theirs`, which in reality does not even exist. Clarify it a bit to avoid misleading readers. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
