git-svn doesn't fully support properties. I mean you can proplist and
propget, but not propset. git-svn itself ignores the various svn:*
when checking out, except for svn:executable. So no eol-style,
needs-lock, externals, etc.

When I've needed control over properties, I've just used svn directly.
git-svn works well for me in the way I use it, but really I'm using it
as a glorified patch-queue-manager.
