Uh, the point is so that the person looking at the "svn log" listing can
tell when the change was made.

Perhaps time-based -r values can't be used "with precision", but if you want
to obtain a precise revision, you wouldn't use them anyway. Time-based -r
values are so you can "retrieve the codebase as it was on 15 May". In cases
like that, if you really want precision, you "svn checkout -r{2005-05-15}"
and then look at the output (or "svn info") to determine which rev number
you got.
