[Python-Dev] $Id$ and sys.subversion (Was: Mercurial?)

One issue that the PEP needs to address is what to do with the files
that use svn (really, CVS) keywords, and what should happen to
sys.subversion. Along with it goes the question what sys.version
should say.

It probably would be good if somebody could produce a patch that
can be applied to a mercurial checkout that gets these things right
(perhaps a Mercurial branch in itself?). Subversion-specific code
is both in configure.in, Makefile.pre.in, and PCbuild/make_buildinfo.c
(not sure whether that would still be needed).
