Please be kind if I'm asking here stupid questions, but isn't subversion
already doing something similar like patch when doing merges?

That was what I was asking for - a patch format which also includes
the log message. Ok, I admit it isn't a feature which can't wait but
I would definitely mark it as 'nice to have' and therefore maybe
even file an issue for post-1.0?

Never noticed that properties weren't applied with patch. Now
that would be something that even might mark the gnu patch
useless for some scenarios. Imagine if someone does some
changes which _need_ some changes in the properties to
get the whole patch to work - then the sent in patch file
can't be applied...

I vote for that!
