Setting svn:keywords on all Portfile's

It appears that in CVS we have automatic keyword substitution on $Id$, for example:

$ head editors/xemacs/Portfile
# $Id: Portfile,v 1.24 2006/06/09 23:18:02 blair Exp $

However, this isn't being updated in svn since the svn:keywords is not set.  I 
committed to editors/xemacs/Portfile yesterday, but it's still showing the last 
commit in CVS.

I propose setting svn:keywords to 'HeadURL Id LastChangedBy LastChangedDate 
LastChangedRevision' on all Portfiles, which will enable all five keywords that 
svn supports.

Is anybody using the following strings in their Portfiles that would be replaced 
and modified by svn:


Any objections to this?
