Basically, yes. keywords-as-hash is a drop in replacement for the
keywords-as-struct code, but there isn't anything that makes use of the
flexibility that this gives us. Some of the things that could happen now:

1) new keywords for anything else that is available in the WC entries
file; someone mentioned UUID when I was working on it in the spring
(though I don't see how that is remotely useful), and it would take a
half dozen lines to add that.

2) If repos_root were available from the WC library (currently you can
only get it from an RA session), it's trivial to add that, too.

3) I've already got code to populate a keyword for any property set on
the file; but this isn't all that useful until inherited properties exist.
