hehe... close.

The prefix that I'm using is:
    http://subversion.tigris.org/props/ra/dav/local/

This corresponds to:
  1) subversion project
  2) properties
  3) RA layer
  4) RA/DAV specifically
  5) "local" rather than being sent over the wire (e.g. client-side only)

The two properties will then be "activity-url" and "version-resource".
Looking at that, I might change tweak the names a bit, but there ya go.

By using the URI, we can ensure that conflicts won't arise with properties
other people may define (which, presumably, are also URIs within their
domain of administrative control).

Cheers,
