Re: svn commit: rev 1643 - trunk/subversion/include trunk/subversion/libsvn_client trunk/subversion/clients/cmdline

An idea: The problem can be solved similarly to what windows does because of the spaces in filenames. In the rare cases when the space would cause ambiquity one can quote the path. For example: "foo@the"@456, or foo@123 and foo@123.

  perforce uses "@". I think this can be easily handled by stating for the
  full name first, and then chop off the "@.*" if that full name doesn't
  exist. Then you have a problem with a file called "foo" and "foo@123", if
  you want to see rev 123 of "foo". We have problems no matter what
  though.
