i agree, merges are often a pain due to those tags, unless you have a
diff tool, that can filter out those lines (frankly, i never used the
ID tag in our source files; adding them to the byte-code of our
product makes it easier for us to track the versions of installed
patches at our customers, but this is rather a product-rollout issue).
