Yes, but the notification message "Merging r891676 through r902803" also
sounds like it is inclusive. It's one of those cases where it isn't
clear what we mean by a "revision": do we mean a change or a version?
When I read it this time I thought it meant the change number 891676 but
in fact it means the version number 891676.

Never mind, it's not really a problem.
