I think this message will need some bike shedding to be consistent with 
other message. Some thoughts:

* "work" is unclear, better say what you know "patterns did not match 
any files that need resolving" (which however is too long)
* it is better to use one sentence with no period - we seem to often use 
, or ;.
* make it more of a full sentence (or two)
* Mercurial do not try to get the plural s right in messages - just use
