I'm -0 on this, but I guess it's a bikeshed UI issue.

It feels a bit inconsistent, since according to all our C APIs, the
way to remove a property is to "set it to NULL" -- I believe the same
idea is present in WebDAV. So a 'propdel' command feels like a
philosophical mismatch to me.

Then again, most users don't know the API, so probably won't care.
