I don't know of any VC system that offers both of these options. I've
only seen users concerned about resolving conflicted hunks; I can't
imagine a situation where the user would want to resolve conflicted
hunks *and* toss out other local edits at the same time.

Ah, good point, I'll check into this. (Though, in the case of an
external diff3 tool, this may not be an option, so we might end up
having to scan for conflict markers anyway.)
