At the request of some people on IRC, I created issues #2947 and #2948
covering the two points mentioned in my blog comment:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2947
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2948

Yes, that would be fine. As long as it is not silent, then I'm happy.

That's handy; I hadn't realized that revert allows a --changeset option.

But it is still requires a lot more manual bookkeeping (and is therefore
more error prone) than

$ quilt pop

which I use about 50 times a day along with its friend, "quilt push". :-)
