I have no particular opinion on the requested feature itself. I am just
curious whether ~/.subversion/servers is the right place where such a
configuration option belongs. Since the requested feature is meant to
be a repository attribute, its configuration _belongs_ into the repos.
If you want all new files in a given repos to have a specific keyword
set, you don't want to depend on client-settings to make this sure.
Storing this into a client-side configuration is not the right place
IMHO.

PS: Wouldn't it be possible for a hook script to automatically set the
keyword on any added files? I see that it is not desirable that hooks
modify transactions. But the hook could submit a second transaction.
