Oh, crap.  Now I'm confused about what to replace that revno with.  The
alternatives are:

111964.1.6      2013-03-15T16:03:address@hidden
112051          2013-03-15T16:06:address@hidden

It's only a difference in timestamp.  Do they have the same content?
If not, serious can of worms.  If so, the qustion of which timestamp
to consider authoritative becomes more philosophical.
