I was hoping this would flame out, but two days of discussion suggests

I am of the opinion of always listing how to use the CVS to its
fullest. It is the thing you will have to interact with the most when
doing work on Python, so trying to avoid it is not doing anyone any

That being said, I am not opposed to someone (other than me as I am
not going to bother) **adding** a not about `patch -R`, but it should
not replace the `svn revert` explanation.
