There's no reason not to always use path@rev.
You can use path@HEAD to get the default behaviour.

In 1.6.5, we explicitly changed the svn CLI client to parse peg revisions
in each of its URL or path arguments, and either evaluate them or discard
them depending on whether a peg revision makes sense in the current context.
This was done to help scripts, hudson jobs, and the like.
