Apparently you missed my point that RCS, CVS, and virtually every
other version control system on the planet already does this with
keyword expansion and nobody thinks that is a design defect. On the
contrary, they find it very useful. Do you not think keyword
expansion is useful? I see this as nothing more than the
generalization of a hacked implementation of a feature already extant,
wide spread, and virtually expected. Obviously opinions differ :-)
