"revert" is already the name of a tlash alias for "tla replay --reverse"
which is IMHO very handy and natural.

Eventually aba subcommands will be usable from tlash in the same way as
tla subommands (without the wrapper name), maybe you could change the name
of your command, or propose a better alias for "tla replay --reverse"?

Since I do not know what your command does precisely, I can hardly
propose something... maybe undo-nolog, or "undo -l" / "undo --no-log",
meaning undo but does not touch patchlogs?

BTW, an outstanding issue with tla is the ability ignore the patchlog
part of (non-pathological) changesets, or apply only the patchlog part.
That would effect several commands, at least "changeset",
"apply-changeset", "replay", "changes", and maybe also "undo", "redo",
"apply-delta", etc.

I remember that was previously discussed with Tom here (as part of a
"how do I reject a patch" discussion) and he seemed to agree with basic

                                                            -- ddaa
