When the peg revision functionality agreed upon, we decided to default
peg revisions to HEAD for URLs and WORKING for WC paths knowing that
it was not exactly the same behavior as used to exist, but that it was
much more useful. In fact, the old behavior could be considered a UI
bug. At any rate, I don't think you can call this a "silent" change,
since it has been discussed to death.
