Hi Greg,

  What I'm trying to do is somehow attach a status on a branch so I just
  need
a place to store that (like a property on the URL). But it doesn;t seem
to like it when I do a propset -r HEAD on the URL.

I'm basically building a layer on top of subversion to support things
like code reviews and aproval cycles.

Thanks for the response,
Greg
