If you would, please allow me to revisit the point from another angle.
1. Do you care about the accuracy of a revision history?
If yes, please read on; if no, then maybe you should read on anyways.
2. Do you feel bothered that modifying a single number value from a text-based file can and would result in the rewriting of the repository's very own revision history? Not even a bit? After all, it greatly diminishes the accuracy of said revision history which you probably care about.
And, alas, that is my point. Although I have never been as personally offended (racially or otherwise) by email, I beg everybody to take a quick breath and ask yourself if changing that single number of that single file should result into a worthless version control solution (more easier to attain in FSFS than BDB, especially without actually hampering the operations of SVN).
And one final remark on my behalf:
... before starting a thread like this in an adversarial tone.
Please correct if I am wrong, but usually a question mark ("?") represents doubt, uncertainty, and a call-for-suggestions and optimism for clarification. And not, as has occurred, an invitation for adversarial remarks, slander, criticism of intellect, blatant disrespect, disregard for courtesy, as well as overt ridicule of character and various other *legally unethical* behavior.
Eh ?! Yes. Eh.
