[SNIP]
well, I think that thinking is kinda weird. in my opinion, svn update
should bring my working copy _up to date_ with the repository, and this
means that I _should_ have that file, thus it _should_ be fetched for
me. so even if it opens up a way for a not-so-official-revert-strategy,
I'd vote for not implementing this behaviour.

cheers,
