Also, this would allow the software to automatically maintain unique setups across different development branches. Sometimes I want MY setups to be different from Bruce's, or I need to unit to access MY section of the server, rather than Bruce's. Again, if I can generate this automatically it saves an error prone step.
Additionally, I have to deal with marketing types who frequently come into the lab and stea..., er, borrow units to take to customers. Sometimes those units aren't as controlled as they should be. If the software can get the branch ID, it can correctly ID that is ISN'T a released version, and jump up and down and scream about it. This is the best solution I can come up with that management will allow (bludgeoning the individuals in question is not considered viable).
Actually, what I'd really rather see would be a $Branch$ or something that would allow me to contain that information.
