I think you don't know how SubWCRev works. The keyword is replaced, but
*not* in the file the keyword is in but the whole file is written to a
new file with those keywords replaced.

TSVN already uses SubWCRev, and we already have other keywords using the
?: notation.

SubWCRev was never even intended to be compatible with the Subversion
keywords. It's something completely different. I've created SubWCRev
*because* the Subversion keywords got replaced in the same file and
*because* I couldn't use them without parsing strings. Otherwise I would
have used those keywords and not written a new app.
