The properties file could include a version number auto-generated from
the SVN revision.
You would need to ensure that it was updated just before a release,
e.g. with a "normal" version number.

Another possibility would be to include a field or method in each java
source file to return the SVN revision. There would need to be a
method to extract this information and display it to the user (or
write a file), and it could produce a lot of detail.

Just a thought.

We use this technique in JMeter for some files that need to be kept in
step with each other, although the revisions are only used for the
JUnit tests, not for identifying JMeter itself.
