Are you suggesting that the arithmetic would not operate on the raw
revision number, but it would be smart enough to go back, in your
example, over the three previous changes to that file? Remember that
the revision number will get bumped by changes to other files, so
-rCOMMITTED-3:COMMITTED might yield exactly the same diff as -
rPREV:COMMITTED if we are taking about revision numbers.
