Wow. I really like resolved a lot. It's an adjective, so it's plain
one isn't asking svn to do any resolving, but only to notice that
something is now resolved. The difference between an adjective like
resolved and a verb like revert is an order of magnitude greater than
the difference without the 'd'.

I haven't really been _for_ any proposal up until now, even my own; but
resolved makes perfect sense to me in every way. It doesn't just fix
the problem, it's a step up from 'resolve' even when considered alone.
I'm not sure who's allowed to contribute + or - according to
convention, but if it's appropriate, count me as +1 for 'resolved'. I
vastly prefer it to any verb, including 'settle'.
