What you're asking me to do is write a wrapper that recurses into every
directory tree rooted at the modified files/dirs and write to each
affected property, do the action, then recurse back into every one and
reverse that property modification. That's a lot of work and seems like
it would extremely slow. What I'm asking is for a certain prefixed
property to simply not be committed to the repo, as well as when using
the special svn: properties to simply take a look at the relevant
local:svn: property as well. It would be a lot more efficient and
probably easier to do than what you're asking.
