Re: Revision number syntax in merge notifications.

Whoops, I'm going to revert my change.

I now remember why I very specifically did *not* go with the "rX:Y"
syntax originally. It's because I did *not* want users to think it
was the same as running -rX:Y on the commandline. As cmpilato pointed
out, -rX:Y means that X is a comparison endpoint, but isn't itself
being merged. But in the case of "revision ranges" during a merge, a
merge-range with values (5, 16) means that r5 is being merged. That's
why I originally wrote "revisions 5-16", which is layspeak for
"changesets 5 through 16 inclusive".

Thanks for reminding me, Karl and Mike. :-)
