      Description

      Subversion allows users to tweak its revision datestamps by editing the svn:date
      property.  As a result, users have the opportunity to change its value to
      something that uses a different-than-expected format (or maybe isn't a date at
      all).  This today causes operations like 'svn log' to croak with a "Bogus date"
      error.
      
      But is that really necessary?  Could Subversion simply recognize the date as
      bogus and mark it as such in the log output?
