Ah, now I see.
Yes, for that the revision property could be used.

Yes, if the normal folder properties are still in use.

That was a misunderstanding. I thought you wanted to replace the folder
properties.

That would be great if the revision properties could be fetched in the
same step as the log messages. And if the commit would set these
properties too in the same step as the actual commit.
But as long as Subversion doesn't provide this, I don't want to
implement this.

Think about it: if you show the logs, and for every log entry you select
to show, TSVN would have to contact the repository first: this would
slow down the log dialog a lot. Not everyone has the repository
accessible via a LAN - many access the repository over a very slow
internet connection!
