In the case of hijacked files, VSS doesn't force people to deal with
binary merges. Neither does Clearcase. Why should SVN be so much more
unfriendly? I'm not saying we "don't tell the user", I'm saying, "we
don't force the user through the current binary conflict resolution
process." We scold the user, explain the backup file, and let them
move on. Just like all these other locking VC systems do.
