Re: Revision number in source, exported

I'm sorry you guys feel that asking for an improvement to the software is trolling. And I have leveled no insults at any person here. When my tone has been negative, maybe it has something to do with people regularly asking for this feature for 5+ years and it seemingly being fairly trivial for somebody already into the source to implement.

I have no interest in carrying on some kind of flame war on your development list. So I leave you, having been reminded that there are users out there that would like this feature.
