How about an option to the commit subcommand:

--propset name:value

An arbitrary number of these could be included. Obviously, the
server side would continue to manage things like svn:author.

Another potential option:

--propedit name

This could be used in addition to (or in place of) --propset
options, and would fire up an additional $SVN_EDITOR session
after the commit-message editor (if any).

Of course, this only addresses the UI.

Would adding a "change_rev_prop" method to the svn_delta_editor_t
interface be the right way of exposing the implementation, or
is it cleaner to grow a new RA function with more parameters?
