Yes, we also thought about that kind of manual approach, and that may be
what we're going to do in the mean time anyway.

However, ISTM that having such repository meta information accessible
through keywords looks useful in more that one case, hence my suggestion
to have that as a feature.

For instance, I have another need to mark LaTeX-generated documents where
relying on $Id$ just gives the revision of one file, although the final
document depends on other files such as images or include files that do
not appear.

Thanks or your idea and your answer,
