Unify alert and merge tool configuration

!!! This changes the autosync command interface !!!

KISS. Now there's only one way to set an alerter tool, using the option
alert in section autosync of an HGRC file. Same thing for the merge
tool: it is defined in autosync->merge. This benefit here is that this
clearly distinguishes the merge tool configuration for the autosync
command and ohter commands which use ui->merge or HGMERGE to get the
merge tool.

This change also fixes a parameter type error when calling the alert

-    to run on errors and conflicts. This tool can be set (1) by using option
-    --alerter, (2) by placing it in the repository root as a file called
-    `.hgalert` or (3) in an HGRC file using options `alerter` in section
-    `autosync` (locations are evaluated in that order). The alerter is supposed
-    to notify errors to a human. The repository path is given as first

-    command keeps running and retries after the next interval, hoping things
