I think what we want to do is create a svn_repos_* wrapper around
svn_fs_change_node_prop(). This wrapper would automatically prevent
any svn:wc: or svn:entry: props from coming through (since we control
the svn: namespace anyway, it's easy to screen out the subspaces).

Then it's just a matter of making the libsvn_repos commit-editor (used
by ra_local and ra_svn) and mod_dav_svn always use
svn_repos_change_node_prop instead of svn_fs_change_node_prop().

I think cmpilato is making this change right now. When it's done,
it's just a matter of upgrading your server code, and your repository
will be "safe" from clients with bug #1012.
