That would work provided all the relevant machines had sufficiently
synchronised clocks.  And provided no two revisions occurred during
the same second (or whatever time interval you chose).  

Neither assumption fills me with confidence; probably more relevantly,
monotone deliberatly avoids making similar assumptions about time, so
I doubt the developers would go for this.
