In which case it sounds to me like the reason given several msgs back on this thread for why keywords were a Bad Thing--

> The problem with keyword expansion comes when you do diffs and merges.

is not relevant, because 'svn diff' can simply turn off keyword expansion.

(On the other hand, maybe I misunderstood the original posting--I read it to mean "keywords" are bad, but maybe it really meant "keyword expansion when doing diffs" is bad. If so, I apologize for prolonging this thread.)
