I feel it is natural that "hg revert" updates dirstate because:
 1) What "hg revert" does is "extraction" of file content.
 2) The eencode/decode is a part of "extraction".
 3) The encode/decode may not symmetry and may be changed by user.
 4) It is not strange that dirstate holds informations of most recent

Is there any reason we should not update dirstate by "revert"?
