Re: svn log --ignore-properties option

I believe this improvement request stems from the fact that Medtronic (the
customer) did a massive commit (to a very large change-set) setting the
properties of ~300k files.

This has caused significant performance issues especially with svn log.
There reasoning was if they could ignore properties this would help combat
these performance issues.

Does this make sense?
