Not sure if I understand: the SVN release number would be included in 
the manifest in jar files, and people can use cvsview (or whatever the 
SVN equivalent is) to get at the right version of the file, isn't it?

And this could work for your own code as well if you respect the what 
convention, so I agree that it is more precise. The downside is making 
sure this info is in every source file, we'd need a script or ant task 
to check I guess.
