Please provide a short description of the behaviour you intend to
implement. Some questions:

- I assume the owner/group/mode of the working copy files get set
  during checkout, does it apply to directories as well?

- Non-root Unix users cannot usually change ownership, does this cause
  lots of warnings or errors?

- Do updates modify the working copy owner/group/mode?

- If I change the owner/group/mode of the working copy does this get
  committed, or do I have to do an explicit propset?

- If an update changes the owner/group/mode does it generate conflicts
  with local changes, or do conflicts only occur if the wc properties
  are modified?

- Is there a way to enable/disable the behaviour?

A rewrite has been mentioned, but that doesn't mean it is planned.

We need a patch against trunk, not 1.1.3.
