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
('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 :-)
