I understood that pluck merely applies the delta between two revisions
(whilst honouring renames etc).

"unpluck" is effectively already present:

mtn pluck -r 1111 -r 2222

is reversed using:

mtn pluck -r 2222 -r 1111

(clearly you need a wrapper to identify the parent if you use pluck with
only one argument).
