It's not just a bikeshed; this is a UI consitency question. The
files are called "left", "right", and "working". It seems
logical to me to use those names, not expect the user to run a
map in his head.

As for the svn_accept_t values, yeah, bikeshed, who cares. I
thought we should try to match the conflict fields in
svn_wc_entry_t, but maybe it's better to match the strings.
