Well, everyone else is giving their $.02 so I will as well. I think
the revert -> undo change should be reverted. The meaning of revert
isn't vague. If anything, its resolve that is vague. When I first
started looking at the svn subcommands I didn't have to look up the
meaning of revert but I DID have to look up resolve.

Unfortunately I can't seem to come up with a good alternative word
for resolve.
