It was actually a bug that it returned 0 anyway - if a file has been
modified and something deletes it that's a conflict that needs flagging up
at least - conflicts should always return error 1.

Retrying after an error 1 isn't a great idea - what if you get a conflict on
a file?  The second update will probably return 0 but you'll lose the
conflict marker in the entries file and it won't compile.  Best to just
return an email with the error.
