Most of that metadata one doesn't want to touch. If datestamps,
author, etc. were made read only, and log messages were somehow
treated specially, we'd probably eliminate the problem -- i.e. if all
unversioned properties were read-only and somehow logs were treated

However, ignoring that for now, is there any sort of hack that could
be added so that (for now) changes to the unversioned properties
showed up in incremental files? That would get rid of a lot of my
immediate issue.
