Okay. So the value is NULL to signal deletion. That's how we
implemented deletion internally -- the point is that the user is
deleting the property. It's pretty easy to put a conditional in to
*allow* the deletion of the property even when kind == svn_node_dir.
Just change

   if (kind == svn_node_dir)


   if ((kind == svn_node_dir) && (value == NULL))


I mean, we're not talking about some deep theoretical problem here :-).
