Easy solution, don't make them sound/look alike. So rename:

    svn revert --> svn abort

"abort" emphasizes the destructive nature and does not look like any
other svn command (yet?).

[I know this is becoming increasingly bikesheddy, but I think it's a
reasonable change which, if at all, should be performed before 1.0.]
