Yeah, but the difference is that the log templates are needed at only
one narrowly defined time (commit), whereas the inherited properties may
be needed at several places (add, revert, etc). It may be acceptable to
require a network access to retrieve the log template from the
repository, but I doubt that would be acceptable for generic iprops.

Storing inherited properties (whether they be log templates or not) in
each admin directory of a WC cause the least amount of change in the
existing WC code, but causes edge cases (as we keep going round and
round on it). I've come to like the lazy populate idea that GHudson
proposed, but I'd like to know what problems KFogel had with that.
