Except that, in practice, the technique Greg is suggesting would be accurate
most of the time. Only if someone committed after you committed, but before you
updated, would the "last comitted revision" differ. If Molle _really_ has to
have a direct measurement of the state of the entire WC, then svnversion is the
only way to accomplish that (specifically because it deals with the WC as a
whole, which the other Subversion CLI apps do not do).
