Yah.

What I actually had in mind was something like this:

    * Make the checked-in SVN_VER_TAG "development" or "prerelease",
      depending on the state of the tree.
    * When creating a development tarball,
         1. check out the tree
         2. change SVN_VER_TAG to "r$(($head_revision + 1))´┐Ż
         3. check in svn_version.h
         4. if current $head_revision is greater than SVN_VER_TAG, back
            to (2)
         5. roll the tarball
         6. change SVN_VER_TAG back to whatever it was before

For a release tarball, the process is similar, except that in (2) you
#undef SVN_VER_TAG and make sure the version numbers are right.

All of this can be done by the distrib script. It's on my list of things
to do, as a matter of fact.

(If you try out my latest Win32 binary, you'll see why the tag can be
useful. :-)
