RFC: Change "revert" behaviour

From: Max Bowsher <maxb_at_ukf.net>

"svn revert" is dreadfully slow, because (IIUC) it's checksumming every
file, despite the fact that svn would usually deem a timestamp match to be
sufficient.

I think this is overly pedantic. It really kills the usefulness of revert,
when you are trying out lots of merges - for example, when reviewing
backports.

I've just thrown together a little script to run "svn status", and
individually invoke "svn revert" on the changed items - but my point is that
I shouldn't *have* to do that.

Therefore I propose making "svn revert" use the same strength of modified
checks as elsewhere, possibly with an option to restore the paranoid
behaviour if desired.

Thoughts?

Max.
