So it does. ;-) That was a little contrived, but this flow is more

   $ vi some/file.c
   $ svn ci -m 'commit message' some/file.c
   $ svn up some/other-file.c

and which will indeed lead to other-file.c having a differing revision
and committed-rev.

So, there would be two pieces to implementing this keyword:

a) Add the keyword itself (trivial, actually);
b) Cause the file containing said keyword to be expanded even though it
is otherwise unchanged.

As you pointed out, implementing b) would also also be the fix for the
$URL$ rewrite in issue #1975.
