I think there'd be a higher chance of it happening for the directory
than for the repository, as we already have a mechanism for the
former, whereas the latter requires protocol changes.

So: How would people feel about svn:keywords on a directory having the
same effect as that property set for every file immediately in the
directory (would be overridden by per-file properties, of course)?

My instinct is that it shouldn't descend into subdirs, you'd just have
to set it on every directory you care about.

By asking, I'm not volunteering to write this :-). But it might be a
small patch. Let's first decide if we want it, though...
