This solution doesn't solve your problem either - for example tagging will
increment the rev number, so you might have:

r100 - commit something to trunk
r101 - tag v2.0 from trunk
r102 - update a branch
r103 - tag v1.9 from a branch
r104 - another commit to trunk

So trunk has no changes in 101, 102 or 103!!!! Just like your 'docs' folder
may go from revision 123 to 199 without any changes...

Basically you *cant* view revision numbers as anything meaningful in this way.
The only think you can take a revision number to mean is:

- the whole repository at a particular point in time

or

- a changeset applied to the repository (affecting certain files)

Histories for folders / files can only be interpreted meaningfully by viewing
the log. That's the only real way to see how often it has been changed.

(It's fine once you get used to it!).
