That won't work. Revisions are repository-wide, so the next committed
revision will very likely not be $WCREV$+1.

Anyway, why do you want to write that into the repository? You only
need it in your working copy. I use this workflow:
1. Test and commit changes.
2. Run SubWCRev to update the local version header.
3. Rebuild the code to show the committed revision.

Note that I have a versioned header called "version.in". SubWCRev
processes this to generate "version.h" which is built into the
software. version.h is a generated file, so I add it to the ignore

If your dev environment includes a pre-build step you could get it to
run SubWCRev automatically before each build.

In TSVN 1.5 (due later this year) there are client-side hooks, so you
will be able to set a post-commit and post-update hook to run
