Oh, I see.
Yes, you're right.
That could be a problem.
But I see that on the same lane as
        svn mv REPOS_URL/trunk REPOS_URL/something-else
ie. an operation which is guaranteed to make troubles :-)

If the /resource-forks path is defined (eg as attribute on REPOS_URL), the
attributs could be relative to that path - renaming this path would take
another propset, and everythings ok.
