Don't *ever* try to force the revision numbers - it won't work any 
more and is associated with a broken way of thinking. This is a 
*very* common mistake that many people make when they don't 
understand what is going on. Instead just tag all the files with some 
meaningful name like "V2.0" and then you can always retrieve that set 
of files with the correct versions by specifying the correct tag on 
checkout. Trust us on this - you can almost totally ignore the 
individual version numbers as they don't really help you that much.
