They are separate issues, but they are related to each other:

I just think it is very important that for resolving merge conflicts
the user is not restricted. Often the user needs all his development
tools (editor, compiler, automated test, manual tests etc.) to fix a conflict.
In the same way as today the user often needs to use all his development
tools for fixing classical update conflicts.

To make this possible, this requires a working copy having
no mixed revisions. And, as second aspect, GUI callbacks
are too restrictive for using all your development tools.

Cheers,
Folker
