I would argue that this is an implementation bug, pure and simple. The
fact that it has persisted since svn-1.0 doesn't change anything. There
is no reason why -r {DATE} couldn't be made to work regardless of the
ordering of the dates; it's just that no-one has taken the trouble to
actually fix the filesystem to return valid results in all cases.
