RE: Possible way to support $Log$

I personally have never used this keyword in any version control tool, and
do not see a lot of need for it (for my own projects). That being said,
the best argument I have seen for it was by someone who said they
primarily work disconnected from the repository and need the information
so that they can do as much research as possible without having a
repository connection. With that in mind, would it be possible to have an
option to store the log information in the WC and then either make some
new or existing svn commands that could look at this information? It
seems like that might satisfy the requirement for being able to access
this information while side-stepping some of the problems that come with
expanding the keywords in the source.

Also, perhaps svn export could be made to support expanding the keyword in
source code itself for people that want this information in source that is
shipped to customers?
