Trying to make your users use Subversion without noticing/using the
global revision numbers is like asking them to drive a car after
removing the tires.

Besides, every global revision already *has* a date attached to it... so
I don't understand how it would be useful to present your users with a
directory full of subdirectories named "YYYMMDDHHMMSS"? That would be
*less* confusing?
