Yes.  There's sometimes an important difference between passing "src/"
as the argument vs passing all the files in "src/" that appear in the
vc-status (beside the fact that the former does not require you to
first mark each one of those files).

I already mentioned it several times when we were talking about which
files should be shown: without `I', any choice other than "all" is
occasionally problematic.

With some backends (E.g. Svn and Bzr), it would make a lot of sense to
make it a new vc-state, since you need to run `(svn|bzr) resolve' to
switch from that state to `edited' and you can't commit before.

In other bakends, it's less clear.  Maybe you should try to simply add
`conflict' as a new `vc-state' and see how it works out.  This will
require checking all uses of `vc-state' to adjust them to the new state.
