I think you should read:

http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#version-value-in-source

and

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.basic.in-action.html#svn.basic.in-action.mixedrevs

What you'll learn from the above is that there generally is no single
revision number your working copy is at: it'll be a mix of revisions.

The other thing is there is no way to substitute the revision number
at commit time: the number is simply unknown until the commit has been
finalized (server-side). At that time, the committed data has become
immutable.

I hope I haven't only added confusion...

bye,

Erik.
