But those are not independent modules (since they share a common parent
directory other than root). If you loaded them as


there would be no conflict. Clearly, the date-revision mapper should not make
the assumtion that the revision number is anything except an artifact or the

revision tree is walked at all points, and not just when locating the initial node.
