SVN does not allow merging files with conflicts. In fact, you cannot a file if 
the patch is not against the HEAD revision. At worst, if the committer is 
really badly educated, he will overwrite the HEAD revision with his/her 
version, but that would compute the (probably large) diff between HEAD and 
said version. Still, no conflicts.

If you have conflicts; it means you (or your build system) modified the files
