Enchance the "revert" command so that it reverts all changes when no arguments are given. It also prints a message saying that "undo" is available to undo the revert. check-in: eaef1a77 user: drh tags: trunk

This misunderstanding likely arises because people fail
to appreciate that SQL is a programming language.  People are taught that SQL
is a "query language" as if that were somehow different from a
"programming language".  But they really are two different favors of the
same thing.  I find that people do better with SQL if they think of
SQL as a programming language and each statement
of SQL is a separate program.  SQL is a percular programming language
in that one uses SQL to specify <i>what</i> to compute whereas in
most other programming languages one specifies <i>how</i>
to carry out the computation.
This difference means that SQL
is an extraordinary high-level programming language, but it is still
just a programming language.
