RFE: support to abort update in case of conflict

Hi,

I would like to propose to add a way to abort updates in case of an
conflict. This could be done by adding e.g. an abort command to the
interactive conflict resolution. This should transform the working copy
to the situation before the update that resulted in an conflict happend.

The reason I would like to have this is because on a project I work on
it regularly happens that one committer accidently reverts changes made
by other that result in an conflict. In this case usually the easiest
way to fix this is to (partially) revert the conflicting commit and then
update. Therefore it would be nice to be able to abort an update that
results in a conflict, wait for the other commiter to revert the
conflicting commit and update then.

Regards
Till
