    Description

      Now the Subversion 1.8 will offer inherited properties and some feature built
      around them, another possible use of inherited properties comes to mind:
      
      * inherited custom keyword definition properties
      
      Rather than ask users to redefine custom keywords every single place they are
      used, we could have an inheritable "svn:custom-keywords" property which manages
      the definitions of the keywords and format strings, and then each individual
      file need only mention the custom keyword token (minus the "={FORMAT_STRING}" bit).
      
      Just a thought.
