Hi Simon

Great work :-)

I was wondering, why don't we use standard CVS / SVN nomenclature for
the attributes?

Eg. replace "$WCREV$" with "$WCREV: 504 $" inside the files instead of
requiring both source and destination files?

Also applicable for the complex attributes you've just crafted:
"$WCMIXED?TrueText:FalseText$" becomes "$WCMIXED?TrueText:FalseText:
TrueText $.

In this regard, the colon that you've chosen between TrueText and
FalseText is IMHO very unfortunate, and should be replaced with
something else quickly, before it becomes common usage, so that we in
the future can be compatible with the CVS/SVN way of doing keywords..
