Upon reflection, I think that this is a valid point in the context of
the cvs2svn converter. Since it already uses properties to optionally
store the original CVS revision number, it shouldn't be too hard to
store a keyword translation as well.

Hence, redirected -> users@cvs2svn.

The hardest part is probably deciding when to set translation. There
*are* several not-so-small repositories out there that have binary files
in them but still use -kkv. That's the whole point, why it's the other
way around in subversion.

However, if the ,v file has -kkv set *and* the file contains a keyword
that was asked for, it should be a safe bet to enable it with a propset.
People tend to notice that their icons suddenly look like modern art
when they happen to accidentally contain an $Id$ string.

Unfortunately I'm not good enough in Python to do that. So, you'll have
to roll your own or wait until someone else scratches that itch :-)
