svn:keywords - suggestion to add UTCDate

Hi,

  About the topic:
     svnbook chapter 7 / svn:keywords

  The keyword $Date$ uses localtime. In CVS, the same keyword uses UTC
time. I have an application that needs Date in UTC. The application will
run in a microcontroller (assembler), so it will be hard to parse and
convert to UTC at runtime. I needed to make a parser to convert $Date$
to UTC at compile time.

  I suggest do be added a future version of SVN the keyword "UTCDate"
that will output something in this format:

     $UTCDate: 2006-01-30 13:17:23 $

  What do you think about adding "UTCDate"? That will make things easier
from people migrating from CVS to SVN.

  Please CC me the answers, I'm not a subscriber of this list.

  Thanks in advance,
    Pedro
