I don't see exactly why. In svnmerge.py (and SVN 1.5) I think it would be
reasonable to just stop at the first conflict and ask the user to retry. We
just want to make sure that the property is correctly "flushed" before we bail
out. The user can then fix the conflict in whatever form he pleases, and rerun
the *same* command line, which will just continue the merge.
