Couldn’t you just compare revisions, see what the
differences were and back out what is appropriate?

How about:

svn up -r xxx

where xxx is the revision number of the last update before the
accidental one (-> the one which you would have wanted to create the
branch from, as Stephen wrote)

This should roll back everything to the state of the former revision,
except your changes, of course.
I'm not sure about conflicts which have occurred during the accidental
svn up, neither about heavier changes in the wc structure (like renaming
files or folders etc.).
Before trying this, I'd make a backup of my working copy first.
