As do we all. I'm also in favor of clean air, clean water, beautiful
spring days, and democratic government, personally.

However, defining "better" is the key problem here. In order to
determine whether or not revision properties should have checksums,
and all the extra code complexity that goes along with that, we'd like
to know of any instances of revision properties getting corrupted in a
way that was not immediately detected. (For example, a hard disk head
strike wouldn't count, because that would have corrupted the entire
repository, revision properties along with everything else. Thus, it
would almost have to be a software error, most likely in Subversion.)

Does anyone have any such horror stories?
