My 0.02c - there was a question raised on the users@ list, regarding the
ability to see the changes that *only* relate to properties. The use case
was seeing the log for svn:externals changes on a directory.

I guess this is the opposite of the above request: one where we can exclude
all property changes, the other where we want nothing but property changes.
