But this seems like such a hack - particularly if you're not using Makefiles
or writing in C.

The text: "Subversion increments the revision number of the repository as a
whole, so it can't expand any keyword to be that number - it would have to
search and possibly modify every file in your working copy on every update
and commit" seems to suggest that this ability is possible, and would be
more feasible if a special property is set on the particular file. The
parser would just ignore files that don't have the property set.

Anyway, just a thought.
