Maybe I chose the wrong example to illustrate my point then. I haven't
used SVN Properties myself yet. It was more my idea of what they
probably were than anything else. So, let me try to explain the idea in
my own words then:

I thought it would be nice to be able to associate with files and/or
revisions an indefinite number of Name=Value pairs which I could later
explicitly query for or even use as log filters.

Maybe rather something to look at when you return to the SQL-backend I

In everybody's best interest, please do not post or CC technical 
questions to me in private unless they are specifically about a 
macro/product of mine that is NOT already bundled with WinCvs. I will 
generally forward my replies to such posts to the CVSGUI list without 
further notice.
