Mostly I was pointing out that the existing keyword expansion framework
is there in the client code already and can do this bit without any
required client-side scripting language. I hadn't gotten as far as
thinking about what other keywords might be useful, but as you point
out, most of those are only valid after the commit ($Author$ being the
sole exception).

I have tricky things in mind with custom keywords, however, so I'd like
to make sure that there is a possibility of other keywords which might
be expandable during the template expansion. For example, a property
which is being updated as part of the commit could be accessible to the
template expansion.
