...which would be true if we were using SVN the textbook way, but for 
historical reasons we aren't.

The SNAPSHOT tag is meant to be moved (deleted and recreated with svn 
copy) by the release manager to mark a milestone towards the next release.

This would make sense and align us to more "normal" practices. The 
convenience of the SNAPSHOT tag was that people providing binary 
releases had a simple reference for the build (i.e., just SNAPSHOT 
instead of a revision number). With more stable builbots we can probably 
use the latest commit at build time, i.e., simply track AOO413 HEAD as 
you suggest.
