GNU diff3 allows git-style potentially conflicting file merges

Busybox does not support diff3, but instead supports diff and patch

Is it possible to emulate diff3 result somehow?

Context: I am looking to do simplistic (conflicted) file merges with busybox to compile it later with Emscripten and put on the Web to do a LaTeX editor in a browser. I do have some feasible workarounds (like compiling programs separately and shipping multiple Emscripten modules), but doing it with Busybox would simplify things.
