Why does it have to be part of distinfo rather than obtained from keywords
or "svn info distinfo | grep ..."?  (The latter might seem like it could
slow things down a bit, but 1) it's unclear if it would make a significant
difference without actual tests, and 2) polluting distinfo looks worse, to
me at least.)
