I've been slightly annoyed by that too; my response was to edit the file _MTN/revision by hand. Hope this helps.

After using mtn merge_into_workspace, I've sometimes decided that I dislike the merges I've (not) made and that I'd like to start over. However, once one has a multi-parent workspace, it appears to be impossible to escape. I cannot use revert or update to change my workspace to something else, as both commands require a single parent workspace. Instead, I'm forced to delete my workspace and perform a new checkout.
