That's all I that I want. Call the child by it's name!

I don't doubt it's usefull to specify a list of changesets especially
in a gui dialog. All I say is that a changeset != revision. Calling a
list of changesets a revision range is totally misleading to all
people that don't live in that TSVN bubble but just use subversion as
a generall system with it's well defined concepts and terms. No matter
what client they use.

I don't want to force someone to follow the way other clients are
working or things. I just say that you have to respect the paradigms a
system has if you wan't to communicate in it's terms without being
misunderstood. I just use svn as a reference to show you the examples
there TSVN currently is not clear.
