I'll say "yes" while hand-waving about the details and complications
of really implementing such a thing. The fact of the matter is that
we will have no way other than trial-and-error to determine if we've
chosen the wrong location for, say, HEAD, and if we get it wrong, the
operation simply *must* error out (it is *not* acceptable to change
the range to 1:PEG under-the-hood, for example). So, sometimes you'll
get an error like "Subversion can't find /your/path@3419 in revision
4512", and sometimes you won't.
