Yeah, kind of - there'll be some form of conflict dialogue though with no
way to resolve it as yet, short of reloading the area. I don't really think
the API 0.6 people were thinking of Potlatch when they decided on that bit.

But one thing that will help is that Potlatch, under API 0.6, will
automatically ask the server for changes every minute or so; and when it
asks for changes, it'll load new versions when available (because the
version column is now exposed in current_ways and current_nodes). So if your
friend on the phone makes a change, it'll automatically show on your screen
within a minute (or sooner, if you pan), assuming no conflict of course.
