It is reversible in the sense that no information is ever lost or
removed from the repository.

Suppose you're at revision 515 and to use Thorsten's example you want
to "go back" to revision 497, after running:

svn merge -r HEAD:497 .

(followed by commit)

revisions 498 through 515 are still in the repository and you can
always access them later.

See "Undoing Changes" in Chapter 4 of the Subversion Book:
