Re: Reverting trunk back to a tag, what's the standard way?

Interesting. That would technically work but I dion't think the latest svn
has support for that anymore. The help docs don't have the -c/--change
switch, and it errors out when trying it.. (svn merge --change 796)

I'll probably just delete the head and recreate it based off of that tag. I
don't see any other graceful ways so far.. the --change was graceful, but
not supported.
