The problem is that $Revision$ is an equivalent keyword to the same one
in CVS, and it _is_ case-sensitive there. I don't know if changing it
to be case-insensitive is the appropriate thing to; the short forms are
unique to Subversion, so that's not such a big deal.

It will also very slightly complicate my keywords-as-hash patch, since I
would have to normalize the capitalization of the hash keys (not a big
deal really).
