It would be really nice if it said "from trunk revision r7859" for
clarity. I mentioned this before, but it was probably lost in the
noise. If adding "trunk" causes the line to be too long, it can be
shortened to "from trunk rXXXX".

I don't like this. Something is wrong if you have to guess the revision
number for the next commit (or require everyone else to hold off their
commits which just as bad). The whole point of using a tag is to
identify the release. The revision number of the tag is 100% useless
redundancy that can only confuse the users.
