This is a good solution when you resolve conflicts in the version
control manually. However this is not very convenient to wrap in a GUI
because the conflict markup can break formatting. So it is difficult
to show the conflict correctly.

If we have a scheme working with separate reject files I intend to
wrap the bazaar integration to turn conflicts into separate conflict
files and use the same GUI to resolve them.

So conflicts in version control and conflicts in zim structure are not
necessarily the same.
