This only works for dates that have already passed. It seems to me, that

svn co -r '{2007-04-13}'

will include any changesets up to 2007-04-13 00:00 (don't know which timezone, 
I guess the servers one). So when I want to include a changeset that happend 
later on 2007-04-13, I have to use 

svn co -r '{2007-04-14}'

which will include all changesets up to now, but when invoked a day latey, it 
may include also other changesets. This is a problem I encountered yesterday, 
because I needed a recent revision, which contains a security fix.

When is this meant, than in case of svn the revision would be a better 
substitution, when the date is today.
