Basically, properties should probably be divided into text properties
and binary properties somehow (I believe there are comments in the
code to that effect as well). If you want to have a truly binary
property (like an icon), you don't want it printed to stdout by `svn
proplist -v' for example.

If there is such a distinction, it is possible to do UTF-8 recoding
for text properties (fixing the svn:ignore dilemma) and leave binary
properties alone.

Just a site remark. I was pondering a bit on this very aspect just
yesterday.
