So, we had a bunch of discussion of this on IRC.  (No log, the log bot
is down.)  I wrote up the main points:

Comments would be appreciated.  In particular, what do people think of
  * 'revert foo/bar.txt' -> works as now
  * 'revert --all' -> works like current 'revert'
  * 'revert' -> error?

The down side is that it makes revert somewhat inconsistent with all
the other restriction-taking commands ("diff", "status", "commit", "ls
unknown/ignored/missing").  The upside is that it can prevent mistakes
(there is more discussion of exactly why this might be useful on that
wiki page).

So the question seems to be what actual users would prefer... comments
