But even if you force the user to chose a move path, the options
"Postpone" and "Mark as resolved/accept current working copy state" are
still available?
What happens if you set a move path index but then decide on plain "Mark
as resolved"?

As for geting a new conflict object: doesn't this ask for a
svn_client_tree_conflict_object_duplicate() API?
