Also, making a change but not changing the revision number doesn't make 
any sense in the context of a revision control system.  It's there to 
make sure you can get back both what you have now and the next thing you 
do to it.  And if you want to think of revision numbers as something to 
keep, you probably should be doing copies into a tags directory instead 
of doing away with the trunk.
