Certainly, that would be useful in general.

Though I hope you all didn't miss my note that Interchange as configured 
by default is *not* vulnerable to this anyway, as it will only server 
files ending in .html, and in my checks none of the CVS or Subversion 
metadata matches that criterion. So it may be a solution without a real 
problem. :)
