Speaking from NetBSD (and I'm concerned about making sure NetBSD can
use Subversion), we need to be able to identify the revisions of the
files that built an executable. That also implies, by the way, that we
need to know which branch and revision the version comes from since
subversion has only the one revision for the entire repository, thus
Wednesdays 1.5 branch and trunk would have the same revision number.

When I say "need", I mean "need". I have to be able to figure out what
someone is running.
