Not that this is the best solution, but I don't think you can say this solution
is bad for IO and then claim the sqlite one is a good solution. sqlite probably
does much more IO than one extra open() call that will fail for 95% of the
unmodified revprops for this solution. I like the sqlite solution, I just don't
think it wins on IO.
