In particular, the effects of time-zones can cause revisions to not have
the dates you expect them to.  If you are extracting a list of one or a
small number of revisions, and then examining the list personally to
find the revision you want, using dates is not particularly hazardous.
But using date-access automatically (in a script, say) can easily
malfunction.
