I agree undo is probably not the best choice. Could we have extra
options on the revert command? eg
bzr revert --changes 1..3
or another command 'revert-changes'
bzr revert-changes 1..3
So the existing revert command is a 'revert back to' and the new command
is 'revert changes made'. In some ways I think having an extra command
for this is better as they are doing quite different things and this
could cause confusion on one command (eg the user forgetting an option
and doing something different to what they expected). I think
'revert-changes' or 'revert-revisions' would be reasonable choices and
since they are not used that often the longer explicit name probably
wouldn't be a problem to type.
