That's really easy to back out. If revision N is the bad commit, then you can use

svn up
svn merge -cN . .
svn commit -m 'revert rN'

If you want to keep in some changes, then you can either do the merge for the
few files you want, or if more files need to be kept, then you can svn revert
the few that shouldn't be reverted.
