Re: Show all options for conflict resolution

We originally showed all options, and it seemed simply overwhelming.
So we took a clue from perforce (which has a really similar UI) and
decided to show only the most common options for newbies.
Intermediate users will look at the whole list to see more options,
and advanced users just end up habituating to typing the letters they
want without reading the prompt at all.

I'd rather find a way to make the full list's availability more
obvious, rather than flooding the novice with 10 options.
