Using strace on Linux it is possible to see how much data is returned by
the reads. SVNCacheFullTexts affects how much gets cached and thus how
significant the uncached revprops become. Looking at the total amout of
data read by apache during a checkout:

                            Initial checkout Second Checkout
fulltext cache 150MB 100MB
no fulltext cache 155MB 105MB

fulltext cache 105MB 35MB
no fulltext cache 120MB 50MB

I haven't separated disk reads from network reads but I suspect the
network reads are only a few MB. These numbers show how much repository
data has to be read from disk, or from the OS cache, to serve a
checkout. In the best case the patch removes 2/3 of the data: 35MB
instead of 100MB.
