Actually, I'd rather that the *commit* updated the WC revision level,
if it made sense. The trival case is that the revision of the committed
files is exactly 1 greater than that of the rest of the WC.

But I'm not really even arguing for that. My point was that for ex-CVS
users, the whole concept of a commit causing the WC to be "out-of-date"
is, let us say, unusual. From the SVN "repository versions, not file
versions" point-of-view, it's consistent, if not always convenient.
