conflicted directory

        I've just had my first "tree conflict" when merging in SVN, I
had deleted some files from a previous revision that weren't present
when I merged so svn decided to tell me about them. I also had a few
other conflicts which I resolved.

        No problem there - except I saw my directory had the little red
triangle on it for the conflict and it wouldn't go away - usually I take
the icon with a small pinch of salt as they sometimes don't refresh as
quickly as I'd like, and I thought this was the problem. However, not in
this case - the missing files were causing my directory to require a
conflict resolution.

        So, I right-clicked and looked for the 'edit conflicts' menu
item, which doesn't exist. At this point I was a bit stumped as to what
to do, in the end I decided to just mark the directory as resolved, and
sort it out later - so I selected the 'resolved' menu item, and it
presented me with a little dialog of missing files that allowed me to
tell it those files were correctly missing.

        What confused me is that for conflicted files, I have to edit
and then resolve them; for a directory I have to go straight to the
resolved command which allows me to 'edit' the conflicts. That didn't
seem to be best practice for usability. Is there a reason its done this
way, or do you think there should there be an 'edit conflicts' menu item
for conflicted directories?
