Except that all of that processing has to be sort of optional because
the source tarballs are not based on a subversion tree, and in that case
(and only that case) there has to be a static svn_info.h file that is
created automatically during packaging.

After three tries at scripting something like this, I have discovered
that it sounds a whole lot easier than it actually is, and concluded
that subversion is simply unfriendly wrt build id numbering and gave up.

If you (or anyone else) can write me a script or executable that can do
all of this, that would be absolutely wonderful!

Best wishes,
