It's not just about whether the date is the first or second in the list, but
also about the directionality of the range specified. Given -r{X}:{Y}, you
want {X} to be the first revision on that date if X < Y (or, older than Y),
the last revision on that date otherwise.

But it's more complex that that, even. Today, we would convert a date of
"2006-05-28" to "2006-05-08 00:00:00 UTC". But again, depending on the
directionality involved, you might instead want that to be "2006-05-28
23:59:59 UTC".

And no, I've *no idea* if "directionality" is actually a word.
