Read what Fitz wrote again; he didn't say /global/ server-side config. If the
server-side config was based on the path, it could be placed at the root of a
tree to be considered "global" for our purposes.

The problem is that apart from properties themselves, there is no metadata on
the repository that the client can query to alter local behavior, which is to
say, there is no server-side configuration in Subversion today. It would be
grossly inefficient to store a "must have lock message" on each of thousands of
files in a portion of a tree, if setting it once on the containing directory
would be sufficient. It's what I want to do for custom keywords as well.
