I thought about that, but...

    <Location /test>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath "C:/data/store/test"
        Order Deny,Allow
        Allow from all

  D:\> svn propset svn:log --revprop -r 1 "new prop" http://localhost/test
  svn: DAV request failed; it's possible that the repository's pre-revprop-change
  hook either failed or is non-existent
  svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged


    <Location /test>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath "C:/data/store/test"
        Order Deny,Allow
        Allow from all
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Subversion test"
        AuthUserFile conf/passwd
        Require valid-user
        Satisfy All

  D:\> svn propset svn:log --revprop -r 1 "new prop" http://localhost/test
  Authentication realm: <http://localhost:80> Subversion test
  Password for 'Juanma': *********
  property 'svn:log' set on repository revision '1'

So it seems that "svn propset --revprop" passes a null username when
there's no auth challenge. But having an open repository and allowing
everybody to change revision properties aren't exactly the same thing.
