This does touch on something important, though, I think:

The last-changed-rev is available *without* talking to the repository,
because it's recorded in the .svn/entries file:


And "svn status -v" isn't the only thing that prints it; there's also
"svn info"...

But the main point is, since the information is local anyway, I think
it's safe to say that there will *always* be a way to get at it using
the command-line client. Probably we'd add a new column to the output
of "svn status -v" (rather than changing the meaning of the existing
column), but either way, there'll be plenty of warning, and it'll be
before 1.0.
