I'm with Ben and want revert to be as simple as possible.
If I say "revert", then I want the file be reverted to my checked out version.
I don't want "revert" to be automatically recursive, because that's dangerous.
Like making rm per default recurse would be very very dangerous.

Leave revert like it is.
It is working well.
And NO - I don't want un-reverts and automatically merges.
(Please work with large sources - you'll appreciate fast responses to you
commands and no magic commands that do stuff behind your back. If you want
to merge, you should do it explicitely.)

Cheers,
Ronny
