Okay, this works because when I see something like this:

    zenia:subversion$ svn status -v CHANGES
    _ 2711 2667 kfogel CHANGES

the second number is guaranteed to be no greater than the first
number. Thus the recent fix to the docs.

However, in your conversation with Alexis Huxley, you pondered the
possibility of changing this so that the second number might be
greater than the first, if you passed `svn status' the `-u' flag, to
allow it to consult the repository and see the latest revision.

I understand that was just idle discussion, but if it does happen, I'd
like to request that there remain *some* way to find the most recent
change that produced the text the user has in hand. Running `svn
status -u' really shouldn't drop that older number in favor of the
newer number.

The `-rPREV' part should appear in the `diff' command's help,
shouldn't it?
