Ape supports both annotations and Zope properties.  Annotations are blocks
of multi-line text, while Zope properties are less constrained.  On the
filesystem, Ape stores many Zope properties together in a single
annotation called "properties".  Other annotations include object
classification, the remainder pickle (encoded in base 64), and security

What are the expectations and limits of Subversion properties?  If they
are blocks of multi-line text, you can store the annotations as Subversion
properties.  If not, we'll still need a .properties file.  (Note that 
the name ".properties" is thus confusing.  Oops.)

Why not add your code to Ape?  I think it would be easier for both of us
to maintain that way.
