Ouch. In the context of this thread, this last is actually a repository
revision. Neither nodes nor node revisions exposed directly in
Subversion, but any (node, node-rev) pair is accessible through one or
more (repository-revison, path) pairs. So please ignore what I wrote
above, it only confuses the issue. :(
