Keep file extensions on conflict

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if this can already be done or if it is a feature request.

When there is a conflict tortoiseSVN helpfully creates additional copies of the conflicted files representing different versions with the file extension .r35 .r34 etc. This is fine when working with code, and the diff editor that understands them, but when using other formats it can be a pain.

We keep all kinds of binary files under subversion control including word documents. Word actually has quite a good compare/merge tool built in, but to persuade it to open the files I normally end up changing their filenames by hand back to docx. Is it possible to have tortoise create files with the naming convention:
originalfilename_r##.originalext
e.g.
originalworddoc_r35.docx

That would make this process much easier, for me at least!

Thanks very much

Ed Waugh
