The two are not synonymous.

Svn [command] -r rev url

Grabs url @ HEAD, then digs back to revision rev.

Svn [command] url@rev

Grabs the repository at revision rev and looks for url in that context.

Depending on how you use SVN the two are going to be the same or quite
different. Either way it's important you are aware of and understand the
nuance.

Cheers
