I don't how how to do that, but some people use their own keyword
instead of $Id$. You'll find $XConsortium$ all around X11 code, I
think; I already saw another such keyword, but can't remember where.

I found nothing in the doc when I looked for it last year. On last
resort, a specially-compiled CVS could be used ?

Maybe we could use a $DebianId$ ?
