I appreciate the impossibility of arutomating conflict resolution completely, but there are several ways in which the process could be facilitated, without incorporating diff / merge functions into joplin.
The workaround described in the above-cited discourse post is cumbersome to say the least.

Why not just provide a „duplicate“ or „save as“ function?
Even more elegant would be a popup during sync offering the choice of one of the two conflicting versions or keeping the conflicting versions on the individual devices. This is an approach used by some other sync tools, e.g. the Outlook task sync facility in Samsung‘s Smart Switch.

On desktop there is a plugin Conflict Resolution available to check the differences and merge them:
