Is there some reason that the 'static char rcsid[] = "$Id$' method
won't do what is being asked for here?

If the original requester is dead-set against putting their own
"version tag" that means something to them into the repo, then this
time tested method would at least provide the requisite (path,rev)
coordinates for each file used in the build process.

I'm presuming that if we're talking about binaries this is a C or C++
app. I'm not sure what storage class would be required, but I can't
imaging that this impossible for Java.

Just a thought.
