When would this ever be useful? All of these commands should give the
same output in your example:

   svn log -r1010
   svn log -r1011
   svn log -r1012
   svn log -r1013
   svn log -r1014
   svn log -r1015
   svn log -rHEAD

So what is the value of a new keyword that is the same as HEAD? There is
no value from a Subversion point of view in knowing that r1010 was the
last time this particular path was updated.

This has been proposed before with "TAIL" being the recommended keyword. I
think the general consensus is that it would be nice to have. I would not
be surprised if there was already an issue filed.
