Oh heck. We have the same problem with entry props, now that I think about
it. What if we define a new entry property and a server generates the thing?
Old clients will interpret it as a stored-in-repository property.

Thus, we'd have ...xmlns/repos and ...xmlns/entry

(or 'entry' could be 'ephemeral' or 'live' or somesuch)

Properties set at the command-line that start with svn: will always go into
the .../repos namespace. Manufactured properties (svn's "live" props) would
go into ../entry or whatever.
