...are you talking about being able to revert layer-wise, like, only the
replace within, so that the originally copied tree is brought back? (I won't
 get too involved here on top of the other stuff, am just curious to know.)
I'm thinking, if it was allowed to contact the repos, revert could cope
using the current schema + op-root flag thing, I guess?
