Yeah, saw this in your response to Patrick Middleton's issue. It
would absolutely help as long as the .svn directory was stored above
the svn:opaque dir in the working copy.

That is, if I have a wc called "presentations" in my homedir, and I
add ~/presentations/Demo.key with Demo.key set to opaque, all the
meta-data would have to be in ~/presentations/.svn/

Unfortunately, judging by the history of that issue, it looks like
this will never be implemented.

Thanks, I may have to... that would mean migrating our staff away
from Subversion just as we're starting to get everyone properly
trained, but it may be the only answer.

Thanks for the info Ryan!
