That was my first thought. Commit and Revert are already fundamentally
different in that way.

Also, I think that the Revert action can be potentially considered an
"editing" action, which commit is not: Revert changes the content of a
file while Commit does not.

I know that as part of an edit, I sometimes make edits to a file and
then decide I do not like the direction I've taken and I revert it so
that I can start with a clean slate of changes.

Despite their similarity in synchronization of content with a
repository version, I don't think Commit and Revert are two sides of
the same coin. I don't think that Revert should automatically have the
same default and options as Commit.
