does it do?

"The paths in paths can be from multiple working copies from multiple
repositories, but even if they all come from the same repository there
is no guarantee that revision represented by svn_opt_revision_head will
remain the same as each path is updated."

Why not just do what TSVN does now in such a case?
- get the UID of the targets.
- if all UID's are the same, fetch the HEAD revision
- now update to that fetched HEAD revision (not HEAD but the specific
