>What's the magic to get $Revision$ and $Date$ to be expanded upon
Expansion does not occur on checkin, but on checkout, and even then,
only in your copy -- that one you see (the internal Subversion copy is
untouched). You have to edit a property for the file where you want
substitutions. That property is named "svn:keywords" and its value
decides which kind of substitution you want to allow.
This is all theory for me, I never used them.
