What? No..
The question about how to roll back a revision comes up at least once
a month (or so) over on the tsvn lists. (Which of course immediately
results in someone pointing to the 'revert revision' menu option and
the OP feeling stupid.. hee hee :-)).

This week, my personal count is 1 multi-revision revert, 1
one-revision revert and 2 partial (single file) reverts.

(None of those happened to be my own code, just in case you're
wondering whether I'm some sort of really lousy developer, humn...)
