A suggestion: if we put /* $Header$ */ at the top of all 
source files, I can easily figure out the revision number of some problem code,

when I have no context except the source file (long after I've pulled a release
unzipped it,
which release it is and what patchlevel, is information that I no longer have).
Alternatively (and perhaps easier), when you
build the tgz files for the distributions,
leave the CVS directories in, so after the tgz is long gone, there is still
enough information in the source code to figure out
which release the sources came from.
