OK, but we could call my wanted keyword something like "YoungestChild".
Than the meaning would be clear, even in mixed Workinf directories.

The advantage would be, If I link that information into the code and
made it
visible with something like "program --version" I could always say what
revision the code is/was derived from, and even better, any
user/customer of my program
could tell me what revision he/she is using. So I could easy check the
same
revision out to do some investigation to errors the user/customer tells
me.

I know, that is what normally Releases (tags like 3.1.17) are good for,
but what
is the problem in having a bit more information?
