I wouldn't mention it -- and I wouldn't hide it.  It was always my 
practice to bring it up if they wanted to interview me -- after 
making it through the initial screening.  You don't want it to seem 
like you are hiding it, but if you tell too soon, it gives some an 
excuse, probably not spoken, to knock you out.
