Have you looked at issue #890?

1. It has patches for the first step in implementing this feature (well,
against Subversion 1.2.0). There is no response as to whether these patches
have been rejected (and the reason why), or they are plainly ignored.

2. In the same issue, there is a reference to keyword substitution
implementation used by FreeBSD. Again, no further description as to why this
implementation was not acceptable, etc.

Given these two examples, I am somewhat afraid to invest my time into learning
Subversion internals and coming up with such changes only to have them rot in
the issue tracker indefinitely.

Best regards,
Alexey.
