No chance to auto-merge the rc files, Steve.
IDE numbers every new component you add to the dialog,
and this number is used everywhere in the code where the
component is referenced. so in case of any merge,
there are another source files that should be changed accordingly.
also it keeps the max number of the used component
and increments it every time new component is added,
so again, it is too much complicate for any tool.

you told that! :)
