Then surely the better answer is to get propedit working, rather than
needlessly duplicating functionality? Exactly how doesn't it work for you?
(It works fine for me.)

Also, what version are you *really* using, given that 0.24 doesn't exist

Hmm, works for me. I see a minor cosmetic glitch:

$ svn ps svn:ignore foo .
property `svn:ignore' set on ''

There's nothing between the "set on" quotes.
