From svnversion --help:
   4123:4168     mixed revision working copy
   4168M         modified working copy
   4123S         switched working copy
   4123P         partial working copy, from a sparse checkout
   4123:4168MS   mixed revision, modified, switched working copy

Dan, I am not that familiar with svn. Are you suggesting something like the following?

# Path to me.
DIRNAME=$(dirname $0)
SVN_REVISION=$(svnversion -n $DIRNAME)
