Something like this also allows access control to be used easily on both
HEAD URLs and revision URLs. Using path-info as in "/revision" looks
ideal for files because it ensures that it can't possibly clash with a
real entry in the repository, but is not so good for directories.
Perhaps "?rev=revision" would be simplest.
