Do the copy based on the highest-numbered revision that you want to copy
(which will be the file's revision, not the top-level folder's

So if you've done a commit and the files involved in the commit got
listed as revision 67, then copy from the root dir with -r67. It
doesn't matter what revision the top-level dir says -- that's the latest
revision that the folder itself got changed, which usually won't
correspond with the changes you just made. And the next commit that
anyone makes, no matter where in the repository they make it, will be
assigned the next revision number (68), which means that you'll exclude
it from your copy.
