While I agree that it might be nice to have subversion repository properties
for doing things like this, I'm not sure how necessary it is.

Here's another suggestion: Users can store default ~/.subversion/config file
in their repository, check them out, and copy the files to their own home dirs.

I.e. have a repos layout like this (for perhaps a corporate network):


Then, when a new employee starts they
~ $ svn co http://svn.mycompany.com/repos/config/ ~/.subversion

And all is happy!
