rvstartid/rvendid behavior change
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The rvstartid and rvendid parameters to prop=revisions used to limit the range regardless of whether the revisions involved actually existed or not. Now they require these revisions actually exist in the database, and will be problematic in situations where ordering by rev_id and by rev_timestamp would give different results.
