Actually the property is bugtraq:xxx not svn:bugtraq, but that was
probably a typo.

In general I don't think it would be right for TSVN to start adding
support for specific properties for one particular system - where
would that end? But we could bypass all the arguments and polemic
about using "svn:" properties by asking the question a different way -
"Can you customize the CfM columns (and maybe repo-browser) to show
user-defined properties?". If the user chooses to use svn: properties
against Subversion's guidelines then that is their problem. We just
provide a means to display *any* property. That seems to me to be a
reasonable feature request.

The down-side to this in the repo browser, is that AFAIK properties
have to be fetched for each item individually, so adding such
properties could slow the browser down a *lot*. But hey, that's the
user's lookout. They choose to display props and take the
consequences. An improvement would be to have the props fetched in a
separate thread and filled in as they become available, but that might
be just too much work.

Displaying as Explorer columns is not worth the effort as M$ seem to
have phased out custom columns in Vista.
