Yes, exactly.

Well, you're reverting a schedule-add, and a schedule-delete.

Reverting the schedule-delete is no big deal: the schedule-delete
flag is removed from the parent directory, and the files within it are
recovered from .svn/text-base/.

Reverting a schedule-add causes the directory tree to become
unversioned (all .svn areas are removed). You can then just 'rm -rf'
the tree.
