Would it be practical for configure to spot that it's being run from an svn (or git) checkout (from the presence of a .svn or .git directory perhaps, or promising output from an svn command), and automatically --enable-svnrev?

I think that would increase the quality of bug reports from svn users, by getting svnrev information into their savefiles without them having to do anything special.
