RE: Efficient way to get the previous revision number

I need it for some checks before the code can me merged, in accordance
to our development process :-)

Basically when I merge from src/dir2 to src/dir1 I need to know what
happened in src/dir2 before the revision I want to merge but after the
last time something was committed in src/dir1. Sorry, it's not easy to
explain in general terms.
