Not quite sure I understand.  Is it that you want to "roll back" to
just before your most recent pull?  What are you doing that makes you
want to do that?

Over netsync, no, it's currently not possible.  A "revision" doesn't
make much sense in isolation, you kinda need the history above it too,
if you want to do most things...

It should be possible to come up with a way to "truncate" local
history, so we only pull revisions backwards to some stopping point.
But we haven't gotten around to working out the design for doing that,
or any code.
