Summary:  Rework replay command-line processing

Original Submission:  (1) Remove the --exact option.  Now if you specify a 
revision, it will apply (or reverse) exactly that revision, and if you specify 
a version it will apply missing/new patches in that version.

    I think this new usage is far more natural; --exact always seemed 
superfluous (`I specified a revision, why can't it know to just apply that 
revision?!?'), sort of like --files did.

(2) Allow multiple version/revision arguments.  I've often wanted to replay 
multiple changesets at once, and it's a minor convenience to be able to give 
them all on the command line.  It's probably less useful for version arguments, 
but I implemented that too for    consistency's sake.

(3) Do more rigorous argument checking, and hopefully improve the error 
messages a bit.

(4) Eliminate all the duplicate code between the `missing' and `new' cases.
