Meaning of LastChangedRevision

From: Vincent Lefevre <vincent+svn_at_vinc17.org>

I use the Id keyword in files and the LastChangedRevision component
(the number after the file name) is quite strange: in general, it
seems to be the revision where the file has changed, e.g. if the
"current" revision is 17 and the file is committed to revision 59,
then LastChangedRevision will be 17, not 59. But after a new checkout
of the repository (this sometimes happens), LastChangedRevision will
no longer be 17, but the last current revision or something like that.

Wouldn't it be better if LastChangedRevision would always refer to
the committed revision, like with RCS/CVS? At least something that
is fixed (like the date), i.e. that doesn't depend on how or when
the file has been checked out.

(BTW, I've been using Subversion for a few days. Thanks to all the
developers for this wonderful software.)
