If you don't know what your tools do, changing their names won't help.
I never confuse svn revert & svn resolve, since I know what they do,
and the mere fact that they share their first two letters doesn't
confuse me.</brane> [1]

I'm -1 on svn undo as well, since it's too generic a name. revert
clearly indicates to me that you're reverting a file, whereas 'undo'
could mean undoing a whole host of things.


[1] I wonder, is this happening because people are using
auto-completion on the svn sub-commands?
