But why did it still exist in my local checkout?  The patch I rolled
back was the one that created the file, so the inverse patch (UNDO
foo) should remove the file.  Applying the inverse patch to the
working directory should have deleted foo.

I guess my confusion wasn't so much that record didn't see foo, but
that foo was still there.  It's like "half of" the UNDO patch got
applied.  Superconfusion.
