All of these features are documented in the book, and we even have an
appendix in the book (appendix A) that is addressed to CVS users
switching over, highlighting differences. Perhaps we should mention the
.cvsignore/svn:ignore transition in that appendix, as well as pointers
to the svn:keywords feature?

Either way, this doesn't seem like a FAQ to me. I've not seen it asked
often at all.

It's difficult to propset thousands of files? You can run 'svn propset
-R' to operate on a whole tree recursively. You can also do something
as simple as 'find . -name "*.c" | xargs propset...'.
