But it doesn't allow to resolve the svn file, so the user has to do that
manually when back in kdevelop.

Apart from that kdiff3 doesn't allow to set the title for the 3 files,
which might be a good idea because when svn finds a conflict all you get
is foo.theirs, foo.mine and (IIRC) foo.rXXX

And what happens if the user doesn't have KDiff3? I mean we don't have
a build-time-dep, we have a runtime dep, so we need an option B (or
present an ugly error message).


You will become rich and famous unless you don't.
