It depends -- what do you want to do with the files if not revert
them?  Right now they have edits that have not yet been submitted to
the depot, and they're sitting on your local machine in the spot where
you're about to try to put files from a different stream.  What do
you want the final outcome to be?  Once we know that we can come up
with the sequence of commands that will get you there.
