        svn:executable is a unix specific attribute. It has no meaning
        on OpenVMS, Mac, Windows.

        It is only reasonable to set svn:executable if on Unix and if
        the executable bits are set.

        OpenVMS uses the file type (.exe), the Mac runs files that are
        marked as 'APPL', windows runs code based on file type, usually
        .EXE.
