Again, I apologise for proposing something when the solution wasn't

The truth is I hadn't looked hard enough to find that method, I had just
looked what --revision used and copied that.

The method you propose is even better for me, becuase I error out anyway
if the revision spec has more than one revision.

Thanks for the help John,
