IIUC, it'd be very dangerous. The user might accidentally commit it (a common
scenario would be that the pre-existing file is not the latest version of the
file that was actually added to the repository, but it comes from an older
iteration of the patch). Marking it as a conflict makes sure the user at least
explicitally resolves it one way or another.
