merge: return an attrs class from update() and applyupdates()

Authored by indygreg on Mar 5 2018, 1:17 AM.



Previously, we returned a tuple containing counts. The result of an
update is kind of complex and the use of tuples with nameless fields
made the code a bit harder to read and constrained future expansion
of the return value.

Let's invent an attrs-defined class for representing the result of
an update operation.

We provide getitem and len implementations for backwards
compatibility as a container type to minimize code churn.

In (at least) Python 2, the % operator seems to insist on using
tuples. So we had to update a consumer using the % operator.

.. api::

merge.update() and merge.applyupdates() now return a class
with named attributes instead of a tuple. Switch consumers
to access elements by name instead of by offset.

mpm made me use a tuple with slots for scmutil.status. Any idea when that's better? I think it was something about performance, but we don't care about that here.

__slots__ allocates enough space for the exact set of attributes specified rather than backing object instances by __dict__. If you create thousands of small objects that all have the same fields, __slots__ can yield some performance wins.
