So here's the great irony, having just implemented this new feature.

I just discovered a bug that's essentially analogous to the one I
fixed yesterday. Yesterday's bug (#646) was that a propchange-only
commit wouldn't cause a file to be "re-expanded" after the commit.
The longstanding bug I found today is that a propchange-only update
won't cause the file to be re-expanded either.

Of course, this is exactly what I want to do right now: I want to set
the svn:executable property on autogen.sh and all the *.py files, and
commit. But if I do that, this bug means that when everyone else
updates, the +x bit won't be changed!

So I'm off to fix the new bug. When that's done, we can +x stuff in
our tree. (Unfortunately, it means re-examining the logic in
svn_wc_install_file, which is never, ever fun.)
