All right... then let's turn this around. It sounds like the URL/rev is
enough to meet your needs. Can you explain what would make it better?

By "longer than you need", I presume you're referring to the fact that much
of the URL is going to be replicated? That you really only want a branch
name (if applicable) ?

For example, maybe you want your ID constants to look like:

  static const char __id__[] = "$Root: /trunk$ $Rev: 1141$";


  static const char __id__[] = "$Root: /tags/0.8$ $Rev: 1141$";
