[OT] Conflict, an open source project

Hello svn devs,

I've started an open source project designed to notify svn users of
conflicts as they occur, rather than at commit time. It works like this.
The Conflict client will publish the output from "svn diff" to the Conflict
server. The Conflict server keeps track of which developer is working with
which resource. When a conflict is detected, the server puts this in the
response. The Conflict client then displays this to the developer (IDE
window, Windows tray icon, etc.).

Have any of you heard of anything like this before? Am told perforce does
something similar.

One question, is the svn diff output *identical* to cvs diff output? If so,
Conflict could be used with both.

I've completed an Eclipse plugin Conflict client, you can see what it does
here

Feedback welcome. Let me know if you think svn users would find this useful,
or if you think it's a POS.
