script type
This plugin splits a CVS conflict file into three diff windows.  The 2 conflicting versions of the file are put on the left and right.  The central window contains the file, with each conflicting area replaced by "=======".  Buffer specific mappings are set up to make the merging simple:

<Ctrl-Down> Move to the next conflict
<Ctrl-Up> Move to the previous conflict
<Ctrl-Left> Use the text from the lefthand file for this conflicting area
<Ctrl-Right> Use the text from the righthand file for this conflicting area
<Ctrl-q> Finish by closing the left and righthand windows, turning off diff and removing the mappings
install details
Unpack the files somewhere that vim can find them.  You'll need to run the :helptags command to install the documentation.
