Or even easier still - just drop the date component altogether. HEAD will
resolve to the latest revision on the trunk, regarless of the date. 

Actually, my installation - 1.11.9 client, 1.11.5 server - refuses to allow
both, complaining that -r and -D are mutually exclusive. This doesn't seem
right to me - I tried it using a branch tag, and it still complained; how
would I tag all files on a branch, modified before a particular timestamp?
