Thanks Pierre - $Name$ was just what we wanted.

Kind regards,

There's the $Name$ keyword, but it won't give you the name of the
branch, just the name of the *release* you exported.  It makes no
difference if the release is on a branch or on the trunk.

Note:  you shouldn't export and ship with a branch tag, because you
won't know what you shipped.  You get the tip of the branch, and that
changes as the branch grows.
