No matter what value you fetch from the server, excepting that it
represents a lower-bound on the true value, the value *must* otherwise
be considered immediately invalid anyway. I believe whether it's
out-of-date by an hour or a minute or a second is largely immaterial
in the larger scheme of things. If code is making assumptions that
the latest revision value is accurate, then there's likely deeper
issues in the code. -- justin
