FWIW, I came up with an insanely complex solution to this problem.  I
believe that what should be done is that we should make a CHECKOUT hook
that will stuff the tag value in with a simple one-liner.


That way everyone who's running from the repo will automagically get a
value in *asdf-revision*.

I /believe/ that this hooking could also be made to work on export, too.

Unfortunately, I have big conference travel coming up and don't have
time to figure out how to get this to work right now...

I bet a git wizard with a glance at the above page could easily figure
out a solution that would be much less baroque than my SHOP (Steaming
Heap o' Perl...).
