It would be nice if `bzr revert --help` would tell a word that it
only affetcs the working tree.
Giving a list of files will revert only those files. Otherwise, all files
will be reverted. If the revision is not specified with '--revision', the
last committed revision is used.
Describing the command "revert" with "it reverts ... files" is
maybe not clear enough.
Have a nice day,
