maybe a dumb comment: all the metadata i use is currently versioned
(svn properties are generally versioned) as i am not using revision
properties, not explicitely at least. Is using "unversioned metadata"
something common? IOW, would it be an option if you simply
restricted the users to change only versioned properties/metadata
if they want to use the mirrored/hotsynced svn repos?
