This suggestion does not sound right to me.
For one thing, versioned properties themselves now seem to me like a wrong
thing. Metadata is just data, so I now think metadata is best served by
special files (and filtering when reading/writing them from/to disk).
Besides I am not sure this data should be versioned. Basically they don't
describe the revisions, but rather the branch at particular location. Ie. at
http://bazaar-vcs.org/bzr/bzr.dev it would say it's mainline for bazaar, but
if I branch it, my branch should not say that.
