Finder Copy: Skip, Replace, Merge?

How long has Merge been an option?

It's great! As it will preserve the newer items in case of any duplicates, but will add anything that is not present in the destination, from the source.

It's been there.

When you option-copy/paste.

OK I had never seen that before. In my case I was not holding down option, but rather click-dragging files from an externally mounted disk onto local disk. This, I suppose is similar enough to the option-drag where a copy is desired instead of a move.
