I've searched for it, but can't find it. The answer is: No not at this
moment. OTOH, i've seen it mentioned that something like this is
in the making. I think i've seen it both on the mailing list as
well as in IssueZilla. It was some kind of 'one-time' keyword that
got subsituted to flat text (e.g. the next revision number) and then
lost the 'status' of being a keyword, just plain text.

Hope that this helps a bit,
