Re: Revert & Unversioned Files

I was more or less just curious about what you thought, Stefan. I'm mainly
bringing this up because sometimes I see the modified overlay icon and I go
to the Revert dialog and see no files listed. I guess this behavior in
itself should be more than enough to tell you that there are unversioned
files causing the overlay to change :)
