In fact, for the sake of madness, I've contrived an example:

Let's add a new property for directories, called svn:auto-props. The
contents of this property are treated as auto-prop entries for any files
added to that directory.

Now lets allow directory auto-props. Then, into config, we add:

*-src = svn:auto-props="*.c = svn:eol-style=native; svn:mime-type: text/c"

So when we add a directory widget-src, it gets the property
svn:auto-props=*.c = svn:eol-style=native; svn:mime-type: text/c

And then when we add widget-src/xyz.c, it gets the svn:eol-style property.

The main problems with this idea are:
1. it's madness!
2. we need to invent some way of nesting expressions.
