At a cursory glance, it seems like the change would work, but one thing you may
not be aware of was that SVN_KEYWORD_MAX_LEN #define may change. The reason is
that it is surprisingly easy to get a path longer than 255 characters in big
projects (like GCC, to use a real life example). I don't know if the #define is
going to be eliminated entirely or just increase by a couple powers of two.
Some testing is going to have to take place as to whether this extra looping
will have any performance issues.

In any case, some test cases and a good log message (see HACKING) are essential
to get a thorough review...
