Bug Description

May we have a 'Revert' to saved version option in the menu?

It makes things easier when we just want to try things out. Clicking 'Revert' is a lot quicker than closing the file and reopening it or clicking Undo until the star disappears.

It is also a very GNOME thing to do, the GIMP, Gedit and Abiword all have a 'Revert' button.

Yeah, revert exists in the HIG too.

Unfortunately we also need a revert confirm dialog (ie Are you sure you want to discard your changes and revert?).
This means changing translatable strings. This means it will have to wait until 0.12.
