I think you can't revert a directory or a whole directory structure. The
pristine copies of the files in your WC are in the hidden .svn directories which
also got moved or deleted. So there is no chance to get them back. If you didn't
mark the directory as deleted with the Subversion command, just use Update on
the parent to restore the directory from the repository (HEAD revision!).
