It is valid, so long as the root directory is up-to-date. But if you
haven't run "svn up" lately, then it'll only show you the last
changed revision as of the last time you ran "svn up". This is one of
the side-effects of allowing mixed-revision working copies.

You may want to use the "svnversion" command instead, which takes
longer to execute but gives you an accurate answer every time.
