Folklore and other useful info

From EricP:

"In case someone later recalls this thread to see how to assure mercurial that conflicts are resolved, the somewhat opaque command is "hg resolve --mark". (This should really show up in the "can't commit with unresolved conflicts" error message. Mercurial's feature of remembering conflicts is probably useful, but has inspired some serious tearing out of hair in the past."
