Once again: The $name$ keyword

Sorry if annoying you. I've searched for quite a long time for a solution to the missing "$name$" keyword in subversion. I could not find anything helpful.

I would like to replace "$name$" keywords in my source code files by the "tag name" (by common convention, the first subfolder below "tags/"). I found the advice to write a piece of code in the corresponding file (e.g. if it is a javascript file, write a piece of javascript, etc.) which uses $URL$ and extracts the part of interest. This is absolutely no satisfying solution if the tag name should be replaced in dozens or hundreds of files in different languages or even plain text.

I also found that there is no way to implement such a keyword using hooks (?)

My last two hopes are:
* Is this feature planned for a near-future release?
* Is there some ready-to-use client wrapper, or whatever, which solves this issue?
