Do you mean "check the text base at the time when svn:keywords becomes set", or
"check the text base every time it is accessed while svn:keywords is set"?

If the former, then this won't help with files that are already messed up in
this way, unless we tell people to unset and then re-set svn:keywords.

If the latter, it sounds like a big performance hit.

"revprop"? You mean the "svn:keywords" file property, I assume.

No way shall the client silently commit anything. Or isn't that what you meant?

How would the user go about fixing the file? We are talking about the base
text, aren't we? All the user can do is perhaps modify the working copy in
some way, if that is useful.

Sorry - I'm not fully understanding these solutions.
