The problem with revision properties is that they only refer to one
specific revision. So to read those properties, TSVN would have to find
out first the revision to look for the properties.

There's an issue filed about this. Don't know the number by heart, but I
think it's 2004 or somewhere around that.

That revision property would be used best by the issue tracking
software, not TSVN.

I was talking about the commit dialog, not the log dialog. The issue
number box on the commit dialog is only shown if the properties are set.
So the commit dialog would have a delayed show up which is something I
really want to avoid at all costs.

TSVN isn't in lockdown mode, Subversion is.
