I anticipate there being more complex changes, where the user may not
necessarily know what needs to be deleted, moved, etc. Sorry, I should
have made that clear. I know about 'rm'.

What if a user makes many complex changes and wants to scrap them all,
and make the HEAD version look like an older revision with just a few
simple changes. Or for that matter, just make the HEAD revision look
exactly like an older revision.

Is this possible?
