What does he use the $Rev keyword anyway? In Subversion, that keyword
reflects the "last committed revision", i.e. the revision in which that
file last was committed. It doesn't reflect the revision of the repository!
Usually people want the revision of the repository, and that's what the
SubWCRev.exe tool is for (see the download page).
