"svn resolve" becomes "svn resolved"

Lots of people agreed that "svn resolve" should change to "svn resolved" to better reflect its meaning and reduce confusion (thread "'svn revert' vs. 'svn resolve'"). Some people proposed additional changes, which I am not discussing here.

Does anyone strongly object to the change?

Does anyone really need the existing "resolve" to remain as a synonym for a while? (GUI front-end developers, perhaps.)

I hope we can just make the change. I know I will forget to add the "d" the first few times I try to use the new version, but it will be worth it.

[This reminds me of everybody's favourite change in the 1990 revision of ISO/ANSI C:
"'8' and '9' are no longer octal digits."]
