Does the existing SVN Pending Operations view not essentially already
fulfill this need? I have no objections to enhancing this view, but
adding another view would not be a good idea.

We chose warning for a couple reasons:

1) Usually the conflicts muck up the source so the source will already
have errors and an error decorator. It looked weird to have two error

2) Our menu icons for Mark Resolved and Edit Conflicts already
incorporated the Warning decorator.

I wonder if Eclipse provides a way to contribute filters to a view so that
the view drop down could let you pick various SVN filters to only show
items in certain states? Then you could use these in things like the
Navigator or Package Explorer views to filter the list.
