Before I wrote merge.lua, that's what I did as well- but it wasn't
very nice, nor portable (/bin/bash anyone?)

If you look at the merge.lua code[1], you'll notice that it is indeed
spartanic, doing only what is necessary to do. All in all, it's an
arguably nicer way of doing what could already be done with echo, cat,
and more cat :-)
The first post explains the usage quite well actually, mostly because
there really isn't much more to it.
