system rollback - branches or switch

Hi all,

I'm writing a system rollback app so I can undo the
changes when I bork my debian system. It's a wrapper
for dpkg and it logs all package and user changes to a
svn repository in /root. Each package install is
committed as a revision. The whole filesystem ( except
/home, /root, /proc & /sys ) is basically a working
copy. Capturing the system changes is up and running
but I need some ideas about how to roll back the
working directory ( i.e / ) to a previous revision
without having to blat it and check out the earlier
revision. I'm thinking svn switch --relocate might be
the way forward or perhaps branches would be a better
approach? Any suggestions appreciated.
