[R] revision tags in package files

Hi All,

I am building my first package.  I have the files under revision
control.  Normally, I have a $Id$ tag in my files
which expand by my editor and so the current revision etc.  I tried to
add it to the DESCRIPTION file by having
the first line to be:
# $Id$

R CMD build complained.  I hoped that this would work, because I read
that the DESCRIPTION file is similar in syntax to the debian package
info and there # can mark a comment.

So is there any way to put my $Id$ in the package files?
