Agreed -- isn't the output of svnversion (no "-c") the same as the
"Checked out revision ___" message at the end of the SVN
checkout/update command, especially since buildbot now ignores the "M"
(if present)?

I would agree with Aaron that there are cases where you want the "last
changed" revision instead, but it might warrant its own property name.
