We've also said that most of the svn developers don't use mixed rev
working copy, probably because most people have a single commit ready
to go into the tree, run make check and then do the commit.

Also, if there were mixed rev copies, then a revision range, or just
the different revisions in the tree, could be printed, which would
imply a more complicated build.
