I thought that the term "branch" was a general one to refer to both the
second element in an unqualified revision spec, as well as a general term
for an ordered set of changesets.  Certainly, there are plenty of uses of
the term "branch" where "version" should technically be used.

Re-reading the help for that particular option, however, it does seem
obvious that if we're going to call the option TAG-VERSION I should probably
refer to it as a version...
