Actually, when we move to a SQL backend, I suspect that on some
implementations, we might end up with holes in the revision numbers. For
example, if we use an auto sequence to generate revision numbers *and*
transaction numbers, then you'll definitely have holes as most transactions
aren't actually committed.
