> In my opinion the peg method guarantees that you get exactly the original state, since the revision is resolved first, then the specific path which will exist even if the path is deleted in a later revision. What are the advantages of -r over 'peg revision' method?

> Currently (1.6.16), in section 4.18.1 of the help the main method to get a revision is the -r switch. peg is mentioned all the way at the bottom of the paragraph, after the recommendation to use specific revisions. It does not describe what peg is (I searched for peg, the only hit is in 4.18.1)
In the old syntax (name options URL) the "-r" means peg revision.
In the "new" svn 1.5+ syntax (options URL_at_rev name) the "-r" means
operative revision and peg revision can be specified as @number after
The operative revision (if not specified) defaults to be the same as
operative one, so using just the "@number" is enough to pin you to the
specific revision of your external.
