[arch-general] makepkg devel_check svn issue

A little background :
when updating a svn package with makepkg, svn info gets called (in the 
devel_check function) and then the "Last Changed Rev" extracted from its 
output and $pkgver updated accordingly.

However, while compiling stjerm-svn [1] (which I maintain in the AUR, 
btw) I end up with a package that has pkgver=256 , but the actual 
revision checked out by svn is 262.
I suspect it may be due to the fact that rev 257 created a new branch 
(you can find the repository here) [2].

This could be easily fixed by considering the "Revision" value (instead 
of "Last Changed Rev") in the svn info output.

Question is, is this the desired behavior or did I just stumble into a 
bug (and should, therefore, report it) ?
