All variables are created equal, except that some are more equal than others. George Orwell, Animal Farm

It's really irritating that a number of obviously generic "variables" are only available when entered into .tmpl files. This makes the documentation more complex than it needs to be, and the code as well, and blows the developers mind when they find that they should be able to do something really simple, but can't.

This is a plea that all generic variables are made equal and expanded in topics as well as templates. Here's a sample set that really should be more generic:

%META %REVINFO

Agreed, this inconsistency bugs me too. This is related to SimplifyInternalMetaDataHandling; all variable handling should be done in one place.

So can we schedule it for a release, then?
