Most other projects have added their own $Id, liek $NetBSD or $XFree86
(FreeBSD is still lagging behind though it's agreed in principle). We
could add an $Apache.

I didn't press this since I was losing the battle to convince people
of it's importance and I still regret it. (It's not easy to do a diff
of a change between a file you have and the next revision if you don't
know what revision you have).
