Umm, there is support for the svn:ignore property, which is essentially
equivalent to .cvsignore, and there is an $Id$ keyword, you just have to
set svn:keywords to Id on each file to get it to expand the keyword.
Unlike CVS subversion does not default to expanding keywords. The only
thing you've mentioned that isn't supported is the $Log$ keyword, and we
have good reasons for not supporting it. I suggest reading up on
svn:ignore and svn:keywords in the book.
