Yes, I've used that approach to fix disastrous merges, easier than rolling
back to a previous night's backup... haven't tried it personally since
1.3ish though, I thought there were more bookkeeping files to update.

Now, I haven't tried it, but shouldn't this be doable by

- taking the repository offline before someone else checks something in
- deleting the last revision(s) under revs and revprops
 (assuming you're using a FSFS repo)
- updating current accordingly
- starting the repository again
