Thanks for the investigation. Hopefully a future version of trac will
support keyword substitution. In the meantime, we can go with either a
commit-triggered script, or a CGI. I have a CGI working, it's really

# Let the users access the latest version of sensors-detect, with keywords
# substituted.

echo "Content-Type: text/plain"

svn cat http://lm-sensors.org/svn/lm-sensors/trunk/prog/detect/sensors-detect

Is there a problem with having this CGI running on the lm-sensors.org
server? Or is the commit-triggered approach prefered for performance
reasons? I don't know how to do commit-triggered scripts.

Note that if this is too much hassle, we can probably stick to the
current situation for some more time; the lack of keyword substitution
is only a minor annoyance.
