It seems to me that the fundamental problem is architectural -- You've
settled on "time of the revision" as the universal identifier (key) for
revisions, but Subversion explicitly considers the time of a revision to be
just another property of the revision. (Other souce control systems may
have similar policies.) You can't reliably put an interface that requires
property X on top of software that does not require property X.

Much more reliable, I think, would be for your system to define its own
revision key datum, and for each real system that it is put on top of, map
an appropriate feature of the real system into the revision key.
