OK. While Stefan sleeps.
Subversion currently does not provide a revision removal facility so
neither can TSVN as a GUI front-end.

There is no changing history but if you have really "got off on the
wrong foot" so to speak at such an early stage of a repository then why
not consider starting another repository with the original files and
re-tracing you efforts but without repeating the errors. Note. You
cannot svn copy files between repositories so it's just drag and drop ol
windows style but it works.

You might become better informed on purely svn issues by joining the
users or dev list for Subversion itself

There have been discussions on these lists but revision removal as
distinct from say file removal is complicated by the fact there is no
programmatic way to fix up human generated log messages, tag names etc
which contain reference to revisions that might become invalid.

One other thing to be well aware of is case sensitivity. Get your
filename case right first time.
