The confusion here is that you and I have different definition of
"user" properties. Your definition seems to be: "any property name
set by the user that doesn't start with svn:". My definition is "any
property stored in the repository."

ra->get_dir() is trying to answer the question: "does this resource
have props attached to it in the repository?" So it needs to notice
properties named "foo" and "svn:eol-style", but it needs to *ignore*
properties like "svn:baseline-relative-path". There's doesn't seem to
be a way to do that.
