The URL?Rev format doesn't work for http(s) servers. TSVN only registers
the URL formats for svn:// and svn+ssh://.
And the apache based servers don't support that format, they only show
the HEAD revision.
(the repos on google code however you can append ?r=XXX to view the url
at the XXX revision - but that's only google code).

I guess I'll just use the tsvncmd: url and specify the repobrowser as
the command.

I'm not sure what copying such an url to the clipboard would achieve?
