No, it's deliberately nonrecursive, deliberately different from the
default behavior of all other commands.

'svn revert' is inherently dangerous, since it tosses local mods.
Therefore if someone wants to revert *all* local mods (rather than
just a single target), we want the user to be very specific about the
decision -- by typing -R.

If 'svn revert' were recursive by default, it would be too easy to hit
the [enter] key early and accidentally wipe out everything.
