WARNING --

This change makes your current working-copy SVN/ areas obsolete. In
other words, the format of this directory has changed.

Here's a recipe for the only potential hazard:

   * you add a prop to a directory that formerly had none

   * you 'svn pdel' the prop.

   * 'svn st' still thinks you have a local prop mod on the dir

Why? Because the 'svn pdel' command blew away SVN/dir-props, but you
still have an empty SVN/dir-prop-base lying around. Why do you have
the old empty dir-prop-base? Because that's the old way of creating
an admininstrative area.

If you were to checkout a new working copy, the empty 'dir-*'
propfiles wouldn't be created in the first place.

See my next mail. :-)
