Yet another reason to hate subversion ...

Yesterday, a family member who is new to subversion fat-fingered a commit and instead of committing just one file committed a whole large directory. It's an easy enough thing to do. My initial reaction was "OK, it shouldn't be too hard to roll that back." After all, I use git reset on a fairly regular basis.

Turns out this is actually quite hard to do. Here is one description of how to do it. Yuck.
