Hmm... so you are saying that repository settings will override locally configured settings but not CLI specified settings? Why? That seems a bit backward to me. I would expect:
* Repository-dictated configuration (as described above)
Can these settings be path specific in the repository? What happens if I have checked-out a sub-path... I'm not sure if you plan on implementing this as a config file a user can check into svn or as properties like the keyword stuff or were you thinking that these is info that will be passed from the server to the client when requested?
One other option, an idea that ASP.Net uses for its config settings is the ability to specify at what level a setting can be overridden.
