Also, making a change but not changing the revision number doesn't make
any sense in the context of a revision control system. It's there to
make sure you can get back both what you have now and the next thing you
do to it. And if you want to think of revision numbers as something to
keep, you probably should be doing copies into a tags directory instead
of doing away with the trunk.
