I don't think that when we came up with svn keyword abbreviations, we
were deliberately trying to match CVS keywords. It's a happy
coincidence that our "Id, Author, Date" abbreviations all happen to be
CVS keywords.

That said, I don't see why we couldn't have *two* abbreviations for
$LastChangedRevision$: keep $Rev$, but also add $Revision$ for the
CVS people out there.

Maybe we can file as a pre-1.0 enhancement? Should be a pretty small
task for a volunteer to tackle.
