Since right now you can override the target-rev attribute with the
--revision command-line option to the svn client, I didn't want to try
manufacture some arbitrary value for that attribute to put into the
xml files. Note that if you take, say, co1-inline.xml, and put a
target-rev="31337" in the <delta-pkg> tag, then use that to do a
checkout without passing the --revision argument to the binary, you'll
get a tree built with all the files/dirs at revision 31337, so the
code *does* work under the hood!

The copyfrom-* attributes are only used when a file has been 'svn
copy'd...and the client doesn't even have that command available right
now, I don't think.

In general, lack of necessity kept me from messing with the XML files
too much, or kept me from checking in my dinkings with them.
