It appears that all the people I've ever spoken to, except for some on
this list, are early Subversion users and are confused by the
*incompatible change in behaviour* that happened with the introduction
of peg revisions.

Note that I've known about peg revs from day one and how they work, and
*still* get bitten by a change that I find non-intuitive.

I wonder if it would make sense to do a survey on the users@ list about
this. I prophesy that most responses would be either "what's a peg
revision?" or "yes, I get bitten by that all the time."
