Merge Duplicates API Endpoint (People class)

Here's an idea:  Create an additional API endpoint under the People class for merging duplicates.  For instance,  I have the ID's for 2 people of which I know are the same person.  The endpoint would hypothetically emulate the action that the website UI performs at (example) => https://slug.nationbuilder.com/admin/signups/5245660/duplicates/13292/merge_in_dupe.  Seems like it would be pretty simple to do and would obviously only require 2 parameters (in additional to auth_tokesn, etc.)  YES, I am aware that there is an UPDATE endpoint, but it looks much more involved and I quite frankly am not sure which fields to update from which records if/when trying to merge records this way.
