When you run into a conflict, svn is really smart about it. You
actually end up with 3 files, named like so:
and also "PKGBUILD". If you take a look at the PKGBUILD file, it will
have all these little things like so:

These are the conflicting sections. You can either justify these, and
remove all the >>> ==== <<< stuff, or go ahead and replace the
PKGBUILD file with one of the three above.
Then when you run "svn resolved" it all gets cleaned up and assumes
you did the right thing.
