from http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.tour.history.html:

"In addition to all of the previous commands, you can use svn update
and svn checkout with the --revision option to take an entire working
copy ?back in time?: [7]

$ svn checkout -r 1729 # Checks out a new working copy at r1729
$ svn update -r 1729 # Updates an existing working copy to r1729

   first, are those two variations exactly equivalent? is there a
reason to choose one over the other? also, if they're equivalent, i
suspect the wording "you can use svn update and svn checkout with the
--revision option ..." should be changed to "you can use svn update
***or*** svn checkout with the --revision option ...", lest newbies
get the impression that they need to invoke both for some reason.
