Thankfully it's not *at all* a copy of VSS ;-)

I don't quite understand this argument. Revert means go back to a
previous state or version. In this context it is the state of
addedness which is being reverted, whereas normally revert refers to
the changes you made to the file. So I think 'revert' is a less
intuitive term to a newbie in the case of added files.

I'm not saying subversion got it wrong, simply that as a GUI we can
give a bit more of a helping hand than the command line client can.
