What are you talking about? 'svn revert *' work just fine. It's the
*shell* that expands the wildcard character, not us. So if something is
broken in that regard, take a look at the shell.

The truth is, what you don't like is probably the non-recursive behavior
by default. We did that on purpose to avoid having people wipe their
changes out unintentionally.

All you need to do to get base to the base revisions of your files is run
'svn revert -R .' at the top of your working copy.
