You can go into Recent Changes, click on the diff link, and rollback to the 
previous revision.  Some spammers have figured this out and do multiple edits 
which make the rollback feature pointless, so you must edit+save an older 
version of the page to restore content.

They would be nice.

I've been cleaning up changes that others miss or get overwhelmed with... just 
hide patrolled edits in the RecentChanges page (may be sysop only?).  That is 
how I have identified and resolved most of the spam leftovers that fall 
through the cracks.
