The keyword-as-hash patch is a much better way to handle this
(structures are so 1990 ;), which is of course my bias seeing that I
rewrote it in it's current form:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=890

The thing holding it back right now is that it doesn't do anything
_else_ useful without the ability to have repository-wide definitions of
custom keywords. That and needing a way to handle error callbacks from
the client if the properties-as-keywords portion gets added, too...

That's a 2.0 question, and I would strongly disagree with replacing the
current fixed size structure with a slightly larger fixed size
structure... :(
