As I said: only keep the defines in that file, no other code stuff. If
you do that, what do you need completion and syntax highlighting for?

As does TSVN. The version.h file generated by SubWCRev from version.in
is used in TortoiseProc and TortoiseMerge.

I don't understand what's so much work.

I don't think so. Either you do it the SubWCRev way with template files,
or you do it the Subversion keyword way and have a lot of coding to do
to parse the strings. And some things won't even work because you can't
parse the string before use (e.g. in resources).

And why wouldn't it be possible to open the project? Please, before you
say anything more, have a look at how TSVN uses SubWCRev.
