automatic use of merged object in non-shared projects

Some developers have two sets of projects in the same release but with
different purposes.
For example one set of projects to develop new features and one to
merge some other sources from other releases or other developpers.
Because the merges are used in the two sets of projects :
- all projects have to be updated before compiling to make sure the
right versions are used
- if a set of projects is compiling, no merges can be done because any
object could be replaced by another incompatible version so the
developer is effectively blocked in his process.
