Ah, 1.6! I somehow thought you were going to be adding the new
features soon. Let's not knowingly go past 80 columns with that
prompt in a formal release.

This doesn't look too bad:

(p)ostpone, (M)ine-all, (T)heirs-all, (r)esolved, (h)elp for more options:

but how about:

Select: (p)ostpone, (M)ine-all, (T)heirs-all, (r)esolved,
        (h)elp for more options:

I'm not going to bikeshed it; it doesn't really matter. Let's
just break it in two lines somehow, as we can do it cleanly, but
terminal emulators cannot :).
