Yes, but he couldn't get that metadata to appear *inside* the files,
without falling back to to one of the includefile hacks, e.g.:

        $ echo -n "#define " > customprop.h
        $ svn proplist customprop filewithprop.c >> customprop.h

(this is a *nix-centric way to deal with it). If someone would check my
patches *hint hint*, I could get back to working on how to implement the
user-defined properties before 1.1...
