Re: client README stuff

There's nothing horribly wrong with "revision" and -r, as long as we
change all the code and other documentation to match.

We need to consistently call them either "revisions" or "versions".
The latter is slightly easier to say, and even when discussing
CVS-controlled files, people often slip into saying "version" instead
of "revision" anyway. That's (I suspect?) why we just started using
the word "version" in our original drafts (Jim, was there any other
reason?).

What do other people think about this issue?
