> svn already unexpands keywords, but only if you told it to expand them
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.)
