But as Mark Phippard commented in that thread, you can already make a
branch directly from a WC. I can't see what else you want to achieve here.

We could maybe add a 'Switch to branch' checkbox to the Branch/Tag
dialog so that the WC is switched to the new branch after creation,
which would save an additional switch operation.

What you are calling 'revert' is simply a 'switch' back to where you
were before. I don't think we should change the current meaning of revert.
