I've seen someone bring this up on IRC a while back, although it doesn't
seem to have resulted in an issue. I'll file one.

The solution to this problem is probably a pass over the entries files
looking for svn:keywords properties which are affected by the switch.
Note that a very similar process would allow us to support a global
revision number substitution, which would make a bunch of users happy.
