Are you saying that 'svn propedit -R' would first pop up into an
editor for the creation/modification of the prop, then recursively
apply it? Or are you saying that you'd never get the editor at all,
and the prop would have to be set by way of some other means,
e.g. command line option or something?

I think the former would be useful, I think the latter would be
confusing to too many. Unless 'svn propedit' is re-designed to take
it's properties from STDIN, in which case, you can redirect a file con
taining the properties to it. IOW:

        svn propedit -R PROPNAME . # take property info from STDIN
                                                # (i.e. the keyboard)

        svn propedit -R PROPNAME . < props.txt # take property info from
                                                # STDIN, which is redirected
                                                # from the file props.txt

        svn propedit -R PROPNAME -e EDITOR . # invoke the editor,
                                                # get the prop info,
                                                # and apply it when
                                                # finished

In all cases, the props would be applied recursively due to the -R
option. If '-e' is specified and $EDITOR is set, you could have 'svn propedit'
invoke that editor rather than requiring the editor be specified on
the command line.

Just some thoughts, do with them what you will :)
