Hello all,

I also have yet to encounter the use-of-peg-revisions (and I doubt whether I
will 'get it' the first time, but it seems to me that a lot of confusion is
created by the -r rev option, which seems to work a lot like CVS -r with the
attached assumed semantics which don't fully match.

As a suggestion, would it be a good idea to drop the -r option and have users
always use peg revisions?
Then you have a totally different look and feel of getting old revisions with
a lot less possibilities for confusion.

Just a thought,
