getRevision, accidentally "sent" that last message too soon.

Sorry about that; my mouse was *not* positioned on the right button
when I accidentally sent that last message.

Anyway...I admit, I haven't fully tracked down how the "-0800" that
I see in my log messages is generated...if it's the server's offset or my
client's offset. The reason I'd like to be able to specify the timezone
is that I'd like to process data from one SVN repository in parallel,
from many computers in different time zones. These computers
need data processing configuration files that break up the data to
be processed by time, and it would be a heck of a lot nicer if I could
just use a GMT time for everything. Given that
SVNRevision.getRevision(String)
assumes a local time zone for creating the Date, I can easily see where
the data requested from the SVN repository would overlap between
different computers that are supposed to be processing different data.

Now, it could be that if the command line log command was working
I would see that the local-time-zone assumption gets taken care of,
but so far it doesn't look like it.

Sorry for not providing a patch; I'm not even sure where to start. Maybe
after y'all add your opinions on if/how this should be addressed I'll make
one up.
