A good clue is to look at the "Revsion: NNNNN" line from "svn info"
output executed from the root of your checkout.  Or if you have the
Python executable handy:

>>> import sys
>>> sys.subversion
('CPython', 'trunk', '46762')

No, I'm not making that up!

What we really want to do is solve the problem.  If we're going to tie
up my machine doing it, I want as few builds as theoretically
possible.  If we're going to tie up your machine, it's fine by me if
it goes back one checkin at a time until 1991 :-)
