Feature Request: Changeset Signing

I'd like to suggest a feature request for future versions of subversion.

When using client certificates to authenticate with the server, it would
be nice if you could also have the client digitally sign change sets
that you commit. When the client sends the change set it could just
compute an MD5 sum of the change set, sign it using the user's private
key, and add it to the commit as a revision property. That way later
you can validate the signed hash and be certain who made the change. In
effect, it's a digital signature that you authorized and approved the
change. This level of change control is required by certain standard
engineering practices that are mandated in certain fields, such as
medical devices.
