Obviously he sees the contradiction -- he pointed it out. "You're never going to stop people throwing around branchless revision numbers" means that until 'svn st' includes the branch name so people will copy-n-paste both into an email in one swipe, svn users will tend to use branchless revision numbers even when they know better.
You both are doing a great job of slinging insults and quote mining, making very little forward progress on what is ultimately an absurdly simple concept.
