        That's why they are called unversioned properties; because they
        *don't* cause the repository revision to change. This feature
        exists now in SubVersion (automatically with author, comment,
        mod date, etc, but you can set your own). What isn't in
        SVN currently is a sane way to make much use of this information.
        You can't report selected on it and you can't update/check out
        to it.
