When an SVN client checks out the code it replaces $Rev$ with the latest 
revision number of the file. It should be r2671 (r2679 which Greg 
mentioned is the revision of the repository as a whole).

I'm pretty sure that the ones that Chris releases do.

Greg gave the explanation. He didn't use an SVN client to check out the 
code. The same will probably be true with tei2mod.
