I'm not sure I've ever heard a use case for this feature...

I mean I'm all for providing some kind of customization of keywords,
but I always assumed such customization would either be aliasing one
keyword to a new name (i.e. $Id$ -> $FreeBSD$ or something like that),
or providing a way to pick and chose the various bits of data we
already provide, so you could have a single keyword with both the URL
and the LastChangedRev or something...

Just being able to plug in arbitrary properties doesn't seem all that
appealing to me, but you've put a fair amount of work into it, so I
assume there's something I'm missing...
