Well, for svn the 'revert' command will take you back to a pristine copy of
your checked out copy.
$ svn revert
If you mean undoing a patch that has been applied to an already modified
working copy -- that's not really an issue either. After all, a subversion
working copy is just a regular subdirectory, with regular files and you may
manipulate them in the usual ways (patch, diff, etc)
People are generally quite surprised how easy it is to get up and running
with subversion, even without any previous experience with revision
There's good documentation here: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/
Read chapters one and two (they're short!) and you'll be off and running.
