Re: Revision keywords

If you 'svn update' the file it will change BASE but may not change
COMMITTED.

For example, if you have a repo at, say, r1000, and the last change was
a commit to file 'foo'. 'foo' has BASE and COMMITTED both at 1000. Now
if you commit to file 'bar' and then do an 'svn update foo', 'foo' will
have BASE of 1001 and COMMITTED of 1000.
