I swear when I read #1975 the first time it said something about passing
a list of the switched files after the update so the client could update
the keywords. It doesn't say that now, so apparently the hallucinations
are getting worse... ;-)

It should be sufficient to just store a flag noting the *presence* of a
svn:keywords in the entries files. Right now you only want to have
$URL$ and possibly $GlobalRevision$ get autoexpanded; later there might
be others and it is easy to retrieve the actual svn:keywords value after
locating which files need special handling...
