If you run something like 'svn propset svn:keywords Id' on the file/folder/recursively, svn picks up on the $Id tag. The structure of the resulting string would be a little different, because svn revision numbers are simply auto-increasing integers (afaik) - so any regular expressions that cleverly want to include the revision number in $VERSION would need to be updated.
