you can add keywords like $Revision: $
what I do is put a line like 
_version = "$Revision: 15490 $"
the 15490 was supplied on doing the commit.
In order to get it to work on svn you need to set properties on the file to
accept specific keywords or it is possible to set it at the config level
search for keywords and svn
You can use the special keywords like Id, Author ... similar to cvs, the
differance is that you need to enable the properties on svn.

Anyone know how to configure subversion to make a commit automatically
update the contents of a particular file with the revision number?

For example...

svn_revision = 2213

The usage would be something like:

from svn_revision import svn_revision

print "This is FooPy revision", svn_revision
