But in Subversion the number and content of such reivision properties
is not limited, so for integration with some third-party tool one can
implement an arbitrary number of new properties without changing
anything in Subversion itself.

It's extraordinary easy to write a small script with perform such
queries by calling "svn pl" and "svn pg".

Such a property may contain several lines with represent multiple
values, like for the svn:ignore property.

As other people already mentioned, it wouldn't make any sense to
implement such a system in Subversion. Instead there should be some
means for integration with other popular ticketing or defect tracking
