Presumably a file originally named index.mine.html, when clashing, would get
called index.mine.mine.html & index.mine.r1234.html (rather than
index.mine.html.r1234 as is the alternative suggested earlier)

Or perhaps

filename.mine.ext
filename.base.ext
filename.<UID of user who last committed>.ext
