I feel pre-commit time is a little too late.

It looks better if the warning appears as soon as the pset is performed.

Also, I think it could only be a warning (someone could wish to put a non
standard svn:* keyword). ISTM that commit time would rather suggest to
trigger an error, or to let it pass and another commit will be needed.

I can do that, but for me the warning really belongs to the client side.
