1) What about the case where I begin with an empty $Author:$ keyword in
my document, and then do my first add/commit of the file. What will get
substituted into the $Author:$ tag, and where did it come from? I am on
unix.

2) When you say "svn:author revision property", do you mean the line in
the .svn/entries file, e.g., last-author="Foo Q. User" ? Or are you
referring to something else?
