Stop! Please don't discuss revision arithmetic in this thread.

This thread is about a simple way of specifying "-r(X-1):X". Only.

If you are interested in revision arithmetic, first read the archived
discussions on it (basic summary: something like it would be useful, but
probably adding and subtracting a given number of actual changes to a specified
item, rather than just the global revision numbers; no concrete proposals have
been made for such a feature)...

... and then start a new mail thread if you want to discuss it.
