That's a very good idea. But I think that it is more limited than need
be. If you define it as


where O is the offset that must be numeric, you can use the offset in
all positions. An added bonus is that the right side becomes context
free again. PREV would be just an alias for COMMITTED-1. And
{2002-11-28}+1 would give you the first commit after midnight morning on
that day.

And I feel that HEAD:HEAD-10 is more descriptive as well.

Caveat: This would disallow using +- in symbolic revision identifiers.
But I don't see any harm in that.

What do you think?
