Oh, I agree entirely. Someday we're going to want to allow remote
propsets (currently disabled), which is a form of commit, and that
means we'll want a syntax like 'svn propset mypropname --data-file
/path/to/prop/contents --log-message-file /path/to/my/commit/msg'.

I still think -F should be used for log messages, but it's long form
needs a new name. And then, as you noted, propsets need their own
long option (no need for short-form there, IMO).
