Tree conflicts - high-priority User Interface tasks

Here are some high-priority UI tasks for getting tree conflict handling
to a releasable state.

  * "svn status" must be able to print "tree conflict" status on a
victim that is not a versioned item in the WC (which happens when
merging a deletion into a branch where the item was deleted earlier or
never existed).

  * "svn status" must not print "C" on the parent.
  (That's easy apart from loads of Python tests to adjust.)

  * There must be a way to use "svn merge" to merge a required change
into a WC to resolve a tree conflict. (The merge currently fails if
there is any conflict already flagged, which is usually the desired
behaviour, but not when you're trying to resolve a conflict and need to
use a merge.)

  * Notifications from "update", "switch", "merge" need to show "C" on
the victim in a new column, rather than "C" on the parent in the first
column.
