For the first option, I'm referring to the ability to remove a revision
permananetly from SVN. According to the TSVN documentation, only the
command line administration tool can do that. It can't be done from
TSVN. When I have used Visual SourceSafe in the past, I frequently made
mistakes checking in. With TSVN, I'm already at revision 9 locally and
have made a couple of errors. It would be nice to do a "revert changes"
and then permanently remove a revision without having to use the command
line. Obviously, a powerful feature like that would have to include
some sort of confirmation dialog warning the user about the consequences.
