Screwed Revision Numbers in SVN

I just did a test migration from cvs to svn and downloaded both RapidSVN and SmartSVN Windows clients, checked out some modules or projects and in the right pane I see the file and folder revision numbers not adhering to most version control conventional format, as in, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 but in SVN format and how SVN bumps up the entire repository revision every time an iota of data is changed.
So nuaturally my migration imported about 15000 revisions. Is there anyway to tell the client applications to show the real file revision in their sequential format as practiced by CVS, ClearCase, Perforce and many other conventional version controls? It's so much easier to discuss file revisions in conventional format such as what changed in rev 1.3 of hello.java vs. its 1.2 revision, one automatically would know that we're discussing the next revision of the file as opposed to SVN's format comparing hello.java 11252(being 1.1) vs. 13605(heing 1.2), how would one discern that 13605 is only revision 1.2 of the file?
