I think it would be best to make the look and feel configurable. CVS by default and
TortoiseSVN if the user wants it (or whatever the majority prefers). Even the used
icons could be configurable.

It displays a list of the possible values for the svn:keywords property. A feature that
would be nice for other properties too. I think an extension point would be a good idea.
