	Only because it is faster than something that
checks each and every file across the network,
and allows builds when un-networked
(like when commuting with my laptop)

	I wasn't actually aware of svnversion. Very nice.
The conciseness of the value set by:

SVN_REV=`svnversion .`

probably outweigh the networking issues.
