        I'm sure I'm not alone.

        In my demonstrations to co-workers, one of the most impressive things was in a response
to an unexpected question. I did a re-factoring of a class to a different package in
Eclipse, and then checked in the 10 affected classes. Just took a minute with no prolems.
Very nice on its own.

        Then, someone asked, "What if I wanted to back out that change?" I replied, "Well,
there's the straightforward way you could use of doing it one file at a time, or the cool
way." Wanting to know what the cool way was, I took a stab at it. Not having done a
merge before, but having read about them, I did

        svn merge -r25:24 %REPOS%/trunk .

Subversion dutifully applied the changes to roll back to version 24 to my work area. I
checked it in, then diffed my work area against the original version 24, and everything
was rolled back properly.

        That was noticed!

        So, I mentioned this privately to Karl, but I'll mention it to everyone involved in the
development of Subversion: You guys are doing a bang up job! Keep up the good work.
