This got me a few times when I first started using svn. You want the
Revert command, even though it doesn't seem like quite the right
thing for this somehow.

Be warned that the local files will be deleted as part of the revert.
If you care about keeping any of these files (which you probably
shouldn't, otherwise you'd want them in source control), make sure
you copy them first.
