The use of 'prop' vs 'props' is still inconsistent after this change:

In general, the summary of the command is in the imperative ("Remove a
property"), while the detailed descriptions vary in their generality:

  1. [This function generally] Removes versioned props in working copy.
  2. [This function, when used, ] Removes [an] unversioned remove prop on...

We need to work out if we're describing what the function does in general,
or documenting what it does specifically (and shouldn't that preposition
be 'from' in both cases, btw?)

Regards,
Malcolm
