Well, at least according to RFC-2616, it should fit in with the spec. Of
course it's a bit tricky to get the correct date for the header, since
it must be generated by the server in order to avoid clock skew. But the
svn:date of the HEAD-at-start-of-commit should satisfy that consraint
(unless changed by a propset, but doing that is horrible anyway).
