You are right, the program --version would give me the highest
revision which belongs to one of its components.

When I take this information an do a svn co -r 30 I would still get
foo.c at rev 20 and bar.c at rev 30. Even if foo.c got an increased
revision number later on, I would get it the same way it got
assigned to my project when my wished keyword was automatically updated,
