Implementing such a keyword would require significant special case
behaviour: Subversion would have to update files containing this keyword
every time the repo revision changed, even though the file contents in the
repo had not.

It would be wise to discuss on dev@ whether such special-casing would ever
be acceptable, before filing an issue.
