I'm not talking about revision numbers in general of course. I'm
talking about how to identify a release.

Using a revision number by itself is useless, because you need a path
as well. However, if the path is a tag, it is enough to identify
release by the path, i.e. the revision number is redundant. Specifying
a revision number for the trunk is quite useless, because the release
can contain stuff that is not in any trunk revision, or pieces merged
from a set of trunk revisions.

It is much more useful to use "svn log" on the tag to find out how a
release was pieced together.
