It won't happen. There have been extensive discussions on the list
about it, and the general consensus is that the history keyword is more
trouble than it's worth. Search the archives for details.

There is already a (not especially well documented) feature that lets
you add rules in your config file that specifies what properties get
added to files when they're added (like all files who's name match *.c
get svn:keywords set to Id or something like that).
