Good, but why remplacing "exported" by "HEAD" ?

exported seems more correct as it doesn't imply anything on the link
between the compiled version and the svn repository. Because when no
.svn are present, nothing is known about the orign of the code, it can
by old, or modified... In my opinion, "exported" is clearer in this

Best regards.
