I've just added "svn resolved must act on a victim path, not a parent
path" to the TODO-1.6 file. The problem Mark noticed (which reminded us
of that) is another one and I would expect more.

We're still working on tree conflicts and I'm not confident that it's
just one or two things left to do - we don't have a clear list of what's
still needed.

How can we best put some tight bounds on what's needed? Here's one idea:
write out one use case from start to finish, and work it through with
the present code, looking for problems where documenting a work-around
is the most expedient way, and for where code fixes are essential. I'll
start that.
