[Subclipse-users] Reverting changes: What is revert and what does replace with do?

I saw similar discussions in other threads but nothing close enough
that I could continue it.

Basically, I don't understand how to use the "revert" or "replace
with" functions to do what I want. In CVS, I'm use to being able to
"replace with" and have it completely wipe out any local changes
replacing with strictly the contents of the repository for a
particular in branch/version/head.

In SVN/Subclipse, however, any "new" files not under source control
remain in the workspace and the workspace is still marked as dirty.
Is there no equivalent way of wiping out all files in favor of the
contents of the repository.

In CVS, I remember this functionality being done automatically with
replace, but also having the ability to do this in the Synchronize
view with "override and update". In SVN, I can't figure out what
"revert" is supposed to be doing.

Also, while in a branch, what is the difference between replacing
with "Base revision" and "Latest from repository".
