my current 'make it do what i think everyone else wanted' patch has it
doing a merge from the current working copy to the target rev and applying
it to the current working copy. so it actually rolls EVERYTHING back
to the revision you're asking for, including any local mods. i could
change that to be between head and the target rev, and i think that
should preserve local mods (or try to anyway).
