[Buildbot-devel] avoiding racy svn checkouts against HEAD

I'm thinking the got_revision property is already populated with the
appropriate directory after the first checkout runs. I'm happy to use
it. I tried this:
The SetProperty step reports that the property gets set correctly, and
the web UI agrees. However, it seemes to have no effect on the
parameters passed to the second update. I still see --revision HEAD.
If my reading of the code is correct, the revision is derived from the
source stamp, so setting this property isn't going to help.
I also tried using extra_args=['-r', Property('got_revision')]. This
resulted in Unpersistable('Unpersistable data: instance of class
buildbot.process.properties.Property deemed insecure') getting inserted
into the command line, literally.
How does one tell source.SVN to get its revision from a property?
