Seconded. It is really useful to have "$Header$" compiled into the
binary to check whether the binary on *that* system is actually
what we suspect.

Would be much less so if there were no revision number in there
(and a bit more so if every editor would modify the $Header$
when the file is modified).


np: 4'33
