suggest $Source$ as alias for $HeadURL$

A few days ago, the topic of supporting $Header$ came up on the list.
While we're on the subject, I'd like to suggestion supporting
$Source$ as an alias for $HeadURL$. This would make it possible to
use the same keywords for RCS, CVS, and Subversion it at least that
additional case.

Just to be extra clear, I'm not suggesting this to ease migration; I'm
suggesting it to make it possible to use the same set of templates for
all three revision control systems. There are still going to be some
places where I will likely to continue to use CVS or RCS for some time
to come, and $Source$ is the only header from the ones I regularly use
that isn't supported by Subversion.

I know others are also interested in this: see issue 980. I would
have posted an issue, but 980 was closed as invalid, referencing 979
which was closed as invalid suggesting that feature requests belonged
on the dev mailing list. But I decided to post here first anyway...
Please let me know if there would have been a better way to bring this
up. :-)
