What I wanted to say is - we want to store auxillary data parallel to the file
data (that's what properties are for), which should be modifieable by the
user with simple statements he already knows (I believe that's the case with
properties).
What I call useful is to do a
 svn propset svn:text-time "2004-01-01T02:03:04.000000Z" http://..../file
and everyone who does an update gets automagically the correct time .... until
this file gets committed, then it'll have another timestamp.

I'll try - but as I don't have svn access (PROPFIND blocked by a firewall) I
just did a "diff -ru orig my" ...
For your script I'll have to start my own repository and wc ...

I'll post a patch with log message and corrected indentation, but I'd like to
await feedback first.

Phil
