I /sort/ of understand, but sort of not.

CVS can /almost/ do this, with $Revision: $, except that there isn't one clear
version # for the whole project.

I understand the comment about bits from different revisions, I think (partial
updates? relocations?), but why wouldn't it be useful to do something
similar to $Revision: $ in the svn client/server executable? If someone does
an 'svn up' or 'svn co' and builds, which is probably the most common
behavior, wouldn't the version number be useful information to include?
