But it is already inconsistent. Wouldn't it be better to be consistently
inconsistent? We can't make it case-sensitive in svn:keywords (which would
have been the obvious choice). If we do the proposed change, we can at
least document "svn:keywords case-insensitive, in the file:
case-sensitive". Currenlty we have a difference between long and short
forms, which I find confusing.

OK, it's no hot topic, so I'll stop now and go back to more important
things.
