We have --nonrecursive switch; looking at 'svn help commit', it seems
that it's not a valid option to commit right now. I wonder why not?
Maybe Pilchie or someone else can let us know whether this switch
can/should work with commits.

? If you run 'svn status', it will print an 'M' in the second column
for items that have property mods. But yeah, it's a little annoying
that you can't *see* the property diffs. I think we could list 'svn
propdiff' as a new bite-sized task for someone...
