Here's a favorite hint of CVS users: Don't. It's much cleaner to get a
"backwards diff" (eg cvs diff -r1.3 -r1.2 file.c) of the rev change
you want to revert, apply it to the file in a clean workdir, and
commit the change. This will eliminate problems due to other people
having outstanding changes to their local copy of the file, as well as
getting around the possibility that something else may have been
committed *after* the change you want to revert.
