For the specific keywords that CVS and Subversion share in common, the
contents of the keyword should be extracted from the CVS file and stored
in the matching keyword prop field (and the keyword unexpanded in the
file). For all other keywords (here I am specifically thinking of
$Log$), Subversion doesn't support them and the contents can be left
"expanded" in the repository.

Is there some keyword you were thinking of that doing the above would
lose information?
