   I am new to subversion (less than two weeks, but three years with ClearCase)
but I think the solution to simplify this process of rolling back some files is
to use svn cat:

svn cat -r100 file1 > file1 # copy the old version over your working copy.
svn cat -r120 file2 > file2

   Then you should be able to perform a commit as usual!
