I'm new to subversion, and am looking for an effective way to group

bug tracker). Previously, our use of CVS led to the less-than-desirable
inclusion of such info in the commit log messages - while it wasn't hard
to get the data in, retrieving the set of files that matched this
required grepping the CVS repository. Reading the subversion docs on
properties made me think it could be a viable alternative, ala BFS
attributes - create a single property for this info and search through
it to get the lists of files. Again, getting the information in is easy

1) Is there a way to get a list of files out of proplist that only
matches a certain property (i.e. not each property per file).

2) Are properties indexed to files internally, or might this get very
slow for larger projects?

3) If one of the above two considerations kill this idea, are there any
alternatives for grouping subsets of the project's files? (tags, for
