I find myself mostly agreeing with cmike here... I don't like the idea
of a prompt, but how about requiring --force to revert a conflicted
file? Has that been suggested and tossed out already? I can't recall.

Really though, I think 'svn resolve' is a perfectly fine name, and we're
spending entirely too much time and effort on a problem that will never
be completely solved. Users will always type the wrong command from
time to time, it just happens.
