In Subversion 1.8, I added code to the server and client layers to propagate
the client program's "user agent" string and version number of the
Subversion libraries in use.  This information gets set as an "ephemeral
transaction property" on the commit transaction, which is to say that it
lives in a regular transaction property, but that property is automatically
deleted from the transaction before the commit is finalized.  The cool this
is that admins can use their pre-commit hook scripts to copy any ephemeral
transaction property that they want to persist post-commit to another
property name (that *won't* get auto-removed).

See http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.8.html#ephemeral-txnprops
for details.
