Would've been convenient if you said what the option was... took me a  
few minutes to figure out where to look. Presumably you're referring  
to the --no-svn-revision option?

Options for 'egg_info' command:
   --egg-base (-e)          directory containing .egg-info directories
                            (default: top of the source tree)
   --tag-svn-revision (-r)  Add subversion revision ID to version number
   --tag-date (-d)          Add date stamp (e.g. 20050528) to version  
   --tag-build (-b)         Specify explicit tag to add to version  
   --no-svn-revision (-R)   Don't add subversion revision ID [default]
   --no-date (-D)           Don't include date stamp [default]
   --tag-build (-b)         Specify explicit tag to add to version  

Note that tag-build shows up twice, here's a patch:
