I always figured that 'path@rev' just allowed the user to locate a
particular line-of-history, and that the -rREV option then chose the
revision to perform the operation on. Given that the default revision
for 'cat' is HEAD, I'm surprised that it behaves this way - it seems to
conflate the two concepts.

We should be consistent though. Apart from 'cat', which of the commands
that accept a peg-revision default to -rPEGREV if no revision argument
is provided (and which don't)?
