Right.  I do that with many internal projects (with svn).
At build time I just create svnrev.h based on the HEAD.
On the other hand, internal projects are less complex in that there aren't
typically multiple ports and cpus supported etc...  Usually if a change is
made, its something the user should have; its not optional.
