This makes write_tree_from_memory(), which writes the active cache as a tree and returns the struct tree for it, available to other code. It also makes available merge_trees(), which does the internal merge of two trees with a known base, and merge_recursive(), which does the recursive internal merge of two commits with a list of common ancestors. The first two of these will be used by checkout -m, and the third is presumably useful in general, although the implementation of checkout -m which entirely matches the behavior of the shell version does not use it (since it ignores the difference of ancestry between the old branch and the new branch).
