Plain 'bzr resolve' actually marks all files without conflict markers as
resolved. As a convenience it also reports what files remain conflicted.
'bzr resolve foo' is a way to force a file that looks like it has a
conflict marker as really resolved.
If you just want the conflicts, there is 'bzr status' and 'bzr conflicts'.
