You can get a similar effect using "bzr revert -r<whatever>".  Note
though that this only changes the _files_, not the working tree state.
A diff or stat will show all [the affected files] as having
uncommitted changes.  e.g., you won't have "a checkout with revision
XYZ", you'll have "a checkout with the HEAD revision, but with the
files in the condition as of XYZ".  This may be near enough what you
need, though.
