Actually, I think I'll take a slightly differently approach here. Rather
than have the client hit the "me resource" (which represents the whole
repository), I'll have it hit the revision resource associated with the
single revision that's being replayed.


That way, requests to replay revisions which don't exist will 404 (as we'd
expect), plus we won't have to marshal the revision number in the request
body -- just the filtering path. (In fact, in the future, we may decide to
allow multiple filtering paths here.)
