Troubles updating repository to a stable state

From: Robert Segal <rsegal_at_3dna.net>

I fear I have become entagled in a web of versioning trouble. Let me review
my woes....

I whom I will refer to as developer A committed some chanages this morning
thinking hey this is great, everything is great. Little did I know that
developer B had committed some changes before I had comitted my changes.
This in itself is fine. When I went to commit my changes I updated to get
the latest changes from developer B then committed my own. The problem is
that as a result of these merges now the application we are working on is in
a broken state. The changes that developer B had committed we're actually
supposed to be committed to a branch he was working on. Unfortunately they
we're commmitted to the trunk instead.

Now I'm trying to figure out how I undo this mess. I have the latest
revision which has my changes but several revisions before that which
contain the trouble making versions. What I would like to do is merge the
state of repository from before all this mess occured with changes made in
the latest revision that has my changes but only the changed files from the
latest revision. I don't want anything in between the last known stable
state and the head revision. Would there be a way to do this? I'm trying
to figure out various schemes of rolling back to a certain state and then
adding the files I have changed. Something like that. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.
