Given what propedit does -- loads the current property value into an
editor, and then save your edited result -- it doesn't really make
alot of sense to recursively edit properties (just how many times do
you want that editor popping up in your face?).

You can today use 'svn propset' with the -F switch.

Or, if the community thinks it useful, we could make 'svn propedit -R'
simply *not* populate the editor with anything, and instead skip
straight to storing your new property recursively. I'd wouldn't mind
that so much (as long as it was properly documented).
