Let me elaborate on this paradigm.

In my mind, 'svn rollback' would simply be a 2nd command added to the
"local mod" category above, for moving through time only.

In our current world, 'svn up' is a simple convenience wrapper around
'svn switch'... for those situations when you want to move in time,
but not space.

Similarly, I think that 'svn rollback' should be a simple convenience
wrapper around 'svn merge'.... again, when you want to move in time,
but not space.

Isn't that simple and clear? [/me hopes others agree]
