I know, I know!

I literally spent *two hours* trying to make the prop callbacks take
const svn_string_t's. But the change kept exploding -- it became
exponentially complex. I wasn't able to keep track anymore -- the
fingers of the change spread out into nearly every function in
libsvn_wc. It was horrible.

So, after two hours, I bailed. But I saved my patch-in-progress (and
the log). I'll file a task about it. Somebody's going to have to
spend all day doing this. At this point, I believe the task is
inextricable from doing a "general" const-ifying cleanup of all of
libsvn_wc. Really huge.
