brutal mode for certain files

Hi folks,

is it possible to tell venus to do an quite brutal behaviour
for resolving conflicts on certain files ?

I've often got conflict problems with rather useless files
(ie. browser cache, stale lockfiles, etc) which make the whole
volume r/o. In those cases these files may safely be killed or 
reverted to the server's version - they really don't matter. 
The only important thing is that these conflicts (on these
specific files) should be solved automatically, without any 
manual intervention or blocks. Venus should simply dump the 
journal somewhere, give an warning to syslog and take out
the big pumpgun.
