To do it correctly, yes, it would require changes. But, having the
DATE-based revision usage expecting a one-to-one mapping from a
non-specific date value is a bit wrong.

However, I think a 'simple' approach wouldn't be that hard: you'd tweak
parse_one_rev and svn_parse_date to set the date to the end of the
minute boundary rather than the beginning when microseconds aren't
specified. It'd result in something more intuitive for the user rather
than doing it at the beginning of the minute boundary. -- justin
