That's fair. I suppose it all depends on your perspective.

Dude, that deleted dir is in revision history. Now, I don't know how
easy/hard it would be resurrect that directory *and preserve its
versioned history*, but simply recreating it is a one-line shell
command (up'ing to an old version, stripping SVN/ subdirs, add
--recursing that bad boy, and committing). And I think I just saw
someone mail about `svn merge', which is certainly the way to go with
this.

If `revert' got smarter and `unadd' and `undelete' could die, I
wouldn't lose a wink of sleep over that change. :-)
