I still think we may get something working by the end of the year. The
simple cases will work and should be useful. The more complex cases
should also work to some extent, but it's possible that some subsequent
tree-conflicts that should be detected while resolving the first
tree-conflict may get missed.

I'm struggling with my wc-fu at the moment: all the code I write appears
to corrupt wc.db. I'm going to break up my patch into smaller bits.
