You are correct that window-revert does not throw to cancel when you
press the cancel button. It should. If you really want it,
I'll make a patch (I've changed it in my MCL 3.0 sources). The other
way to tell if the revert was cancelled is to check for a change in
the buffer-modcnt:

(defmethod window-revert-or-cancel ((w fred-mixin))
  (let* ((buf (fred-buffer w))
         (modcnt (buffer-modcnt buf)))
    (window-revert w)
    (when (eql modcnt (buffer-modcnt buf))
