'svn st -u' already does this, but it's not explicitly listed as a 'C'.

The 'M' means locally modified. The '*' means "a newer revision exists
on the server"
        M * 220 test2/branch/foo.java
which is a merge conflict.

        svn status -u | grep '^.......[*]' | grep -v '^ [*]'
should list all the conflicts (and a few false positives. Not all
status flags would indicate a merge conflict, so the grep could be made
