The additional indexing is not really our problem (and the indexer won't care about a few more MB), and it is very easy to filter on *.svn-base if somebody want that.

Dunno ... I think any indexing in the .svn directory is a mistake and
likely to cause confusion. Not because of performance degradation, but
because users really shouldn't care about the contents of that
directory, including not seeing them in search results.

Of course, tweaking that flag when the file is renamed has its own set
of "interesting" problems ... for example, we'd have to check the flag
and inheritance settings on the parent directory.
