Great :)

Thanks for the summary!

I think we should leave all output as it is for now, because changing
it will probably require adjusting a lot of regression tests.

For now I'd like to focus on getting something done that works,
even if it does not look nice. We can always polish up the interface
later. There are still changes in the pipeline for the tree conflicts
branch that will have a major effect on the conflict detection code,
e.g. directories support, 'svn resolved' changes, and possibly
honouring of properties. See the tree conflicts issue list, which
can be retrieved by putting "tree-conflicts" (without the quotes!)
into the "URL:" field of the issue tracker query form.

We should concentrate on getting those changes done before doing any
further UI adjustments, IMHO.
