I cannot recall a single occasion in 10+ years I have had to do this. So
what is the specific scenario you have where this is necessary? Please
provide more details. How does TortoiseSVN handle the same situation?

The main issue with reverting a directory is we have to be careful to not
inadvertently revert the children when that is not desired. For example if
you are reverting a property change on a folder, but do not want to revert
the content changes in all files beneath the folder too.

If the folder is scheduled-add, then it should be safe to revert it
recursively since you cannot revert the folder without the children anyway.
