Jean-Paul, you are correct that it's the revision number of the last change to 
trunk I'm fishing for; I wasn't precise enough originally, thanks for 
pointing it out.

I'm not sure if using the change notifier would work for us, since we need it 
to work with arbitrary forced builds (i.e. old commits).  Also, everything 
works well already as it is, except for the revision number returned.

Charles, yeah, you're right, the default needs to be the old behavior.  
Principle of least surprise.

Any other comments?  I can make a new patch that makes this configurable.
