Hm. I'm working on rollback, but it is undeniably a Hard Problem and  
in Potlatch UI terms needs to be lumped with the even Harder Problem  
of redesigning the tag editing panel. That's why it hasn't happened  
in Potlatch yet, not because I'm lazy (well, not especially).  
Frederik committing five-line changes to two or three controllers  
doesn't really delay this work.
