True. The only frustrating thing is that you can't use 'svn revert' to
get rid of the local mod. You're left with 'svn diff {f} | patch -R'
or recopying the text-base file manually.

I tried to do a repository-side 'svn propdel' and of course that
doesn't exist, for reasons I only remembered afterwards. If it did
exist, though, obviously it *would* unexpand the keywords, and thus
would make an argument for WC-side 'svn propdel' doing the same.
