I've applied Martin's patch, but Fitz's suggestion doesn't quite
work. Using

foo = xxx=yyy

I get

$svn pl -v wc/foo
Properties on 'wc/foo':
  xxx : yyyzzz

It appears that the newlines are being stripped. I don't know whether
that's a bug, or whether it is the config parser or Martin's patch
that does it. It's not that important at present since Martin's patch
doesn't yet do directories, but it does mean that a future directory
implementation of auto-props will have to change something to support
