You will probably find this doesn't work.
You may have many branches which are based on old interfaces,
but the repository has only one revision number, so the repository
revision for all of them them will be the same as for branches which use
new interfaces. (Also, before you commit, it will be difficult to know
what the range check number should be, unless there are no other people
checking in to your repository.)
