Keyword to identify exported tag?

Dear All,

Back in the land of CVS, I used to have something like this in my file

// This is Gnomovision, release $Name$

When I tagged a release (e.g. V1-0) I would create a tar file:

$ cvs export -r V1-0 -d gnomovision-1.0 gnomovision
$ tar czf gnomovision-1.0.tgz gnomovision-1.0

Or something like that - it's only been a few weeks and I'm already
forgetting the syntax! Anyway the point is that CVS would replace
$Name$ with the tag that I had used in the export command, so people
looking at files from the tar could see what release they had come from.
  (This is my project release name/number, not the revision of the
individual file or anything else.)

I'd like to be able to do something similar with Subversion. It can
happen either when I "svn copy" (or "svncopy.pl") to tag the release, or
when I export to create the tar file. I already have a wrapper script
to do the export-and-tar so that would be a good place to add it.

Can anyone suggest a good way to do this?
