Oh, I suppose one way would be to print the current WC revision in the
trace, changing

    U notes/autoversioning-strategy.txt


    U (1066) notes/autoversioning-strategy.txt

or some such. No, I have no opinion about how useful that would actually
be. But I'm sure it can be done at the price of complicating the code
even more.
