Not "any" other or at least not in a "cheap" way[1].
svn stores informations inside the working copy.
Anyway that would make hacking the site a bit harder.

[1] you'd have to store the revision # somewhere outside the working
copy and diff with the remote repo.
Still if you're actively developing a site you'd have to find some
way to compare working copy with a moving code base... and maybe
glue everything with some rcs hook.
