Hi Greg,

thanks for response.

c# in fact :-). Yes - this is the most propable way we'll go.

True - it is not "burning need". I still think, it'll be nice feature to
have since CVS have it, and SVN tries to be better CVS, don't it? As I
already wrote somewhere, it'd be propably done as switch rather than new
command. Say "revert --force" or "update --clean" (which would made "revert
--force;update", maybe even more effectivelly)

From quick look that tool looks good. But we coudn't rely on any specific
builder since our tool supports generic builder (even that we mostly
supports nant). See http://ccnet.sf.net.
