Ah, I was going to avoid this issue completely*, and just map SVN
user-supplied properties (from 'propset' or whatever) into (dead)
properties on the DAV server in the 'SVN:custom' namespace. Then, ra_dav
ignores all live and dead properties when fetching from the server
except those in 'SVN:custom' and the other ones it knows about.
