[a bit off-topic here, but] This is only the case if we allow multiple
spellings of custom keywords; i.e., if you're allowed to put KeywordFoo
in svn:keywords, bu spell it as $Foo$ in the file itself. If we don't
allow that, then the information in svn:keywords is always sufficient
for unexpanding a file.
