Agreed. I assumed there might be some TortoiseSVN users on this list, and
the activity appeared to be much higher here than the TSVN list.

OK. We're just trying to make sense of it, since we don't even find an
option to specify a revision with "svn revert". Yet, the following dialog
[1] allows you to right-click on a specific revision and select "Revert
changes from this revision". Since we're new to SVN we assumed this had
some purpose we didn't know about.
