As a user, I'm +1 for having the file modified to mark as executable
(which is already there), and +0.5 to have it marked read-only if there
is an underlying locking mechanism or lack of permissions to commit.

I'm -1 for having the local working copy mirror permissions of the
server, any more than I want files downloaded in other ways to have
owners, groups, and other random restrictions associated with those
imposed. It seems like a tremendous undertaking for something which will
only annoy the actual users of the system. It also seems like it would
impose trusted rights on the system for the subversion client in order
to impose those restrictions, which I would not be willing to grant for
any sort of versioning software.
