What do you mean by "manually selecting things to revert"?  (I'm
assuming there's a spelling error in your email there ;-)

I would revert file deletions by reverting specific files:

 % darcs w -s
 R ./fileA
 M ./fileB +1
 % darcs revert -a fileA
 Reverting changes in "fileA"..

 Finished reverting.
 % darcs w -s
 M ./fileB +1

I don't think it can get less manual than that...
