RE: Update to revision

I'd like to bring up the old discussion about the "Update to date" feature. While I understand Stefan's reasoning about the potential dangers, there seems to be a use case for many users (at least several programmers that I know of) who develop projects with externals where both externals and the project itself are in the trunk development (example: the main project is merely split into two projects for adminstrative/packaging reasons, but otherwise it is the same project). In our projects, we sometimes have 4 applications that are concurrently developed and they share up to 12 libraries via svn:externals. The manual tagging/branching does really only work towards the end of a project, or with a significant overhead which does not pay off for us.
In such use cases it is definitely a relevant wish to have a revert-to-date feature, which could be implemented in the GUI of TortoseSVN alone and does not require changes in the svnlib.
The implementation is not really trivial, but not too complicated either. Maybe we can have a poll or so to get an idea about the priority.
If the availability of a developer is the main problem, I could work on this implementation beginning in May (I did some changes in TortoiseSVN long time ago, so I hope I'll get this done).
