The out of dateness error is generated on the server side, so it shouldn't be
too hard to include the extra information. We should also have different error
messages for each type of out of dateness. Something like:

User 'bar' has also changed file 'foo' in revision 4.
File 'foo' was already deleted by user 'bar' in revision 4.
File 'foo' was already added by user 'bar' in revision 4.

I don't have time to take a look at this now, but I think it's low hanging fruit.
