I was kind of hoping for a more generalized case where property changes could be reported and / or filtered by name / pattern. It seems a shame to go through so many server round-trips to get the changed paths for a revision, enumerate the property names, and then compare the value(s) between the target revision and a different revision.

If there is already a simpler mechanism within the SVN API for doing the above, then I will delve deepr into the source next time, because I didn't find it this time. Also, it would be nice if such a feature would percolate up to the CLI (and thus put pressure on other clients for support).

Did this feature request make its way into the issue tracker somewhere?
