Properties should only be settable in a working copy.

svn propset -R, but as above, I'm pretty sure versioned properties can
only be set on a WC, not a URL.

C:\>svn help propset
propset (pset, ps): Set the value of a property on files, dirs, or revisions.
usage: 1. propset PROPNAME PROPVAL PATH...
       2. propset PROPNAME --revprop -r REV PROPVAL [TARGET]

  1. Creates a versioned, local propchange in working copy.
  2. Creates an unversioned, remote propchange on repos revision.
     TARGET only determines which repository to access.
