Why not go with something that works for the locality you are in. So in
Britain, it could be:

   $ svn sorted file.c

(that wouldn't be confusing at all) whereas in the US, it could be:

   $ svn dealt file.c

(as in, "You have a conflict? Deal!")

On a more sober note, if you are going to leave the file around, I think
you should probably suffix it with a name that makes it clear to the type
of user that gets confused by commands what it is the file is for.
Something like ".reverted", so they have an idea at a glance what the
contents of the file are likely to be. No point in leaving the file behind
if it is never used.
