revision + date of last change of the file AFAICT.

dont understand this; of course it gets updated once while inserting the id tag for first
time; after that no more.

yes, I think so - after I've commit the 'svn propset svn:keywords "Id" file' then my local
files hold the expanded version.

> 4. What is stored in the repository "$id $" or its expanded version?
$id $; this is some downside since I guess that viewcvs always will show the $id $ only, and
not the expanded version - but this might be a setting in viewcvs? I dont know, but can only
tell what I found with other repos where I use the id.
