You are correct; revision should have changed at the very least.
However, I think the interface did change with perhaps backwards
compatibility with 0.9.0. I am not sure since I was not really involved
in much of the changes for that release. However, now its difficult to
determine since the 0.9.1 release was not tagged in CVS [sigh]. We will
try to be more diligent in future releases. thank you.
