Indeed, I probably just made it out of the manual...

Ah, I wasn't aware of syntax limitations!

I got the message:
bzr: ERROR: Error in external merge tool definition.
Definition needs to contain %r, %b, %r and %o
Definition is C:/Program Files/UText/WinMerge/WinMergeU.exe %o %t %r

I noticed the typo (twice %r) and checked if there is an update.
Got revision 15.
Looks like they expanded a bit the syntax.

C:/Program Files/UText/WinMerge/WinMergeU.exe %o %T

which is one of the legal syntaxes, and it opens WinMerge with the file from the other 
branch and the current file, which looks like a good way to solve conflict, no?

Now, I just went and opened
I added the lines:

     # WinMerge-style 2 way merge

at the end of valid_parameter_sets (with a comma before) and tried that.
It worked...
