They shouldn't, AFAICT, but it might be harder to use it since you
need to be aware of the non-linear structure when you choose a point
to bisect.  But IIUC, it's generally useful even on projects that
always use merge commits.

I hesitate to do that since there are some cases where a merge commit
makes sense.
