Wouldn't this feature also cover repository settings? I mean something
like a conf-file stored in the repository which then clients would fetch
with every update (like the UUID) and would be stored in the wc.
Only it wouldn't be a config file but all configs would be stored as
props in root. So this could also cover issue 1974:
