$ThisRev$ keyword (not a joke... I think)

You know what I really want? A keyword "$ThisRev$" that expands at
commit time to "revision N", i.e., it's not a keyword thereafter.
That way I could write comments like

    /* As of $ThisRev$, this code no longer does blah, because [...] */

without having to guess at the upcoming revision number :-).

Of course, they way keywords are currently handled, one would still
have to set a property for $ThisRev$ to get expanded correctly, but
maybe we could make it a config option or something...

Thoughts? Flames? Rotten tomatos? :-)
