Presumably if we had this feature, we would have a flag in entries.h
which means "the text-base of this file contains $WorkingRev$". If the
flag was set, we would know to regenerate the working contents of the
file each time an update is done.

Of course, the complexity involved here is pretty high for a feature
which is nothing more than a neat trick to simplify build systems a
little bit. So I'm -1 on having $WorkingRev$.
