I dunno, that seems kind of generic. It seems like "svn undo" suggests
that you could undo lots of things, not just local edits.

I don't really agree. I mean, I'm sure people have done it, but I'm not
certain that it happens often enough to justify picking less intuitive
command names.

I've also never liked the command "svn resolve", since it's kind of a
lie (the actual operation is something like "mark-resolved", but that's
unwieldly). So I'd be more tempted to search for alternatives for
"resolve" than for "revert."
