Hmm. The two cases that strike me are:

svn:keywords on new text files.

It would be nice if I didn't have to do a "svn ps svn:keywords 'URL Rev
Date' file", which I always forget. So by default would be nice. But
what about binaries...do svn:keywords still apply if the mime type is
set and not text/*? If not, I don't think this system would help me
without becoming weird and complicated...

svn:ignore on new directories.

I don't care a lot for a few reasons:
- I create directories much more rarely than files.
- My Java projects have little to ignore: only top-level
"build.properties", "build", and "dist".
- Per-user ignores in ~/.subversion/config take care of most other things.
