I'm inclined to agree, but I'm worried about the case when the existing
property isn't terminated by a newline.

Do we define special semantics for svn:* properties (add a seperating
newline between the existing nd appended values if one not already present)?

Or do we define this for all properties?

Are there any instances when this would be undesired?
