Hmm. I think that *would* be technically feasible, but are you
proposing that those keywords would only be expanded on export and not
on regular checkout? I'm not sure it's wise to introduce that kind of
difference in the file contents produced by the two operations (export
is supposed to produce exactly what checkout would!), especially not
when there are pretty easy workarounds (just remember the revision you
exported and run your own substitution script).
