Bug Description

"bzr help conflict-types" says, under "Text conflicts":

  When you have resolved text conflicts, just run ``bzr resolve --auto``, and
  Bazaar will auto-detect which conflicts you have resolved.

But "bzr resolve" does not accept the --auto switch. The correct command is "bzr resolve", without any switches.

Ouch.

There is a FIXME in this code:

                    # FIXME: There is a special case here related to the option
                    # handling that could be clearer and easier to discover by
                    # providing an --auto action (bug #344013 and #383396) and
                    # make it mandatory instead of implicit and active only
                    # when no file_list is provided -- vila 091229
                    action = 'auto'

Looks like the FIXME author and the doc author went out of sync.... ;)
