If a conflict is already recorded for a file, then it is best to leave
it on disk because the resolver may try to do someting with it based
on the options chosen by the users.

If you had moved the file aside before 'svn update' the conflict would
not have appeared in the first place.
'svn status' will show such unversioned files with '?'.
