The bzr revision information is for the maintainers to be able to
correlate reported problems with Emacs development.  For that purpose,
having the revision-id is enough.

As I said, if the revision numbers are also available, that is
better.  But it's not a requirement, and I have no idea why would a
user need to know the revision number.
