Well, the problem is that there is only one way to do it correctly:
use the $Revision$ keyword in every file. This is because the working
copy is not necessarily (actually, almost never) all at the same
revision level and thus it's never possible to accurately describe
exactly what you built if you don't include all versions of all files.
See the Subversion Book section about mixed revisions.

Yes, it is. If you don't want that, then, please tell me, so I can
stop doing it for you.
