	Well, I'm not a buildbot developer, just a user.  I'm doing what
I can to make do with the "all-the-world-is-one-repository" and so on.
If buildbot starts providing me with this info on its own, then sure I
don't have to do it in my Makefile.  I called the script
"svnrev._guess_" for a reason :-)
	That said, I'm not sure where this functionality goes.  Our
release numbers work very well for us, but might not work for others,
and if you put the policy in buildbot, you remove flexibility.
	Discuss :-)
