Thanks for explaining, you're right.
I come from a VS.Net / NetBeans etc. world where builds are done with
the click of a button in the GUI, and SubWCRev doesn't lend itself to
this way of working very easily. The Subversion way of doing keywords
work better there.

Ok, thanks for explaining. Wrong context though, I think. It applies
for the previous paragraph ("also applicable..."), but it doesn't
apply for changing the colon to something else, just in case.

I still think the colon should be changed :-).
