OK, do it. In a previous message, Óscar said:

Well, yes. revnos are convenient, and it seems unfortunate to force
everyone to abandon that just because you (= collective) are
developing on a private branch. So if you want your revision
references to be universal, use revids. I'm not trying to convince
anyone *not* to use revids. I'm strongly opposed against being forced
to *use* them in the *trunk* because other people have private
branches. If that means the trunk branch is privileged, well, with our
current setup and procedures, it is.
