Maybe, but that seems overkill for many situations.  I imagine revert
is intended for when you decide that what you've done to the file just
isn't worth saving, and you want to forget all the changes.  undo
seems to have a broader role.  On the other hand, perhaps it's better
to optimize certain uses of undo (where you don't want it to record
the changeset).
