I use PREV and COMMITTED all the time to see what the "last change"
was to a particular file.

svn diff -rPREV:COMMITTED myfile

I do this when I see that an update has pulled in changes to a file
that I "own" or recently changed, just to see what my fellow
developers might have done with my recent changes. They may have
caught a mistake I made, or they might have made some other change
that I should be aware of.
