I had given up on trying to get a single revision to refer to the
build. My suggestion was to give the (rev,path) coordinates for the
individual pieces that made up the build. This thread had made it
clear that there is no internal value that refers to the entire
build; the only way you get that is by making a copy into a tag that
isn't touched again.
