This sets the svn:keywords property to " Id " on all files found in
your working copy with names containing at least one period. This has
the effect of turning on keyword expansion for the keyword "Id" for
those files.

(Are you sure you want to turn on keyword expansion for potentially
*ever* file? Are you certain you haven't got any binary files that
might be damaged by spurious keyword expansion?)

There's a better way to handle newly added files than rerunning the
script. You can use svn's auto-props.
