I don't understand why you don't checksum the properties. I do
understand why the properties/log messages aren't versioned, but I'd
still like to know when my repository has been corrupted somehow.

I used to trust my nightly batch run of "svnadmin verify"'s to inform me
when something has gone wrong. But as I understand now some external
event (virus, disk damage) might alter the property part of the
repository database and "svnadmin verify" might never notice this. I'm
not really happy about this...
