revert -keep?

Hi,

Coming from a clearcase background, I'm finding the revert behaviour a bit unnerving.

In particular, the behaviour of
http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#revert

"Making the svn revert command require an explicit target—even if that target is just '.'—is one way
of accomplishing that. This requirement (as well as requiring you to supply the --recursive (-R)
flag if you want that behavior) is intended to make you really think about what you're doing,
because once your files are reverted, your local modifications are gone forever."

In a clearcase uncheckout, you have the option of either removing or keeping your modified files.
if you choose to remove, the behaviour is as per subversion, if you choose to keep, you get
filename.keep and later .keep.2 and .keep.3 and so on.

I'm running
svn, version 0.26.0 (r6550)
    compiled Jul 31 2003, 02:46:58
which I feel is pretty up to date, and it doesn't appear to be an option under svn help revert

Is this a planned feature? Is there an issue ID I can track?

Cheers,
Karl P
