Negative, since there isn't a big difference in output. See the reasons 
mentioned in my mail to Jochen. Examples will be put up on the Wiki in 
just a moment.

On that we agree, and AFAIU it is in the works, just not implemented 
serverside yet. Thats the reason why the client now has SVN revision 
numbers and a revision name.
