I don't really know, but I'd see a problem with this in that it would
enable users to create a revision sequence that doesn't increase in time.
It's easily possible to commit a 1.44 revision that has a date that's
before the date of the 1.43 revision. Not sure what this would do to the
internal logic; it seems to require increasing dates with increasing
revision numbers.
